Your kids can enjoy a fun, creative, and unique birthday party with their friends! Our experienced instructors and staff can plan, prepare and host an awesome art-inspired birthday party, right here in our spacious and accommodating studio. We can accommodate large groups (minimum of 12). Just come, ready for fun, with birthday cake and refreshments (no nut products, please). 

Cut Outs

Adapted from course.
Recommended for ages 7 and up. 

You will work as a team to create paper “banners” by utilizing the negative and positive spaces of different shapes cut out of coloured paper. You will then work as a team to arrange the shapes and glue them down on paper (like a puzzle!). Cut-outs by Matisse will be used as inspiration. 

Print Making

Recommended for ages 6 and up. 

 

Make a drawing (can be a landscape, still life or abstract) which is transferred to styrofoam. Ink is applied onto the styrofoam, which is then pressed on a clean sheet of paper creating a beautiful mono print negative. 

Concentric Circles

Recommended for ages 4 and up. 

This project is based on the Kandinsky Concentric Circles piece. You will make an abstract painting of concentric circles using oil pastels. Then, in the same style using acrylic or tempera paints, you will paint a simple shape of your choosing (butterfly, maple leaf, star etc) 

Portraiture for Children

Adapted from course.
Recommended for ages 5 and up. 

This is NOT your usual portrait painting class. You will be shown images of portraits by famous artists from history. You will choose ONE of the styles and paint a portrait of yourself, your friend and/or parent/ guardian. The objective is to become familiar with various historical styles in a fun and creative way. 

Stained Glass

Recommended for ages 4 and up. 

A stained glass effect is achieved by using plasticine to create contour lines and outlines of images on paper, cardboard or acetate. The resulting shapes are then painted in with tempera or watercolours. 

Mosaic Book Cover

Recommended for ages 6 and up. 

Draw a design on cardboard and bring it to life by gluing colourful paper pieces to create a unique mosaic. Your paper mosaic will then be fixed with a glossy medium. 

Making Mobiles

Adapted from course.
Recommended for ages 5 and up. 

Inspired by Calder’s mobiles. You will make mobiles form recycled materials and painted according to your unique imagination and visual perception. Making mobiles teaches you about balance, both visual and physical. 

Decorative Mask

Recommended for ages 4 and up. 

A mask shape (of your choosing) will be pre-cut from card board and you will decorate it with beads and beans! 

Create a Diorama

Recommended for ages 6 and up. 

You will make a diorama and populate it with your own clay creations such as people, animals or places. Create your own theme or base your diorama on an existing story.

Lantern Making

Recommended for ages 6 and up. 

Create paper lanterns using tissue paper, battery-powered candles and acetate.
