Whether you're painting a canvas or glazing a platter, you’ll enjoy our creative studio. Gather 8 friends, pick a date, choose an art project and let our artist guide you through the process, step-by-step. You can choose a painting from our library, or send us your ideas and we’ll paint a sample for your approval. You may also enjoy decorating a piece from our bisque pottery collection** such as a plate, platter, bowl or vase!
Parties include use of our full kitchen, glassware, all art materials, aprons and an artist guide.
When planning your party, keep in mind some paintings take longer than others and some groups enjoy more social time.

Art house parties are famous for FUN! You relax and we'll do the rest. We teach children art skills in a cool environment that just makes learning enjoyable!
First, we welcome the birthday child with balloons and a personalized sign outside. Then we take the children through their art project (painting or ceramics) step-by-step. We teach the kids lots of tips and tricks to make their experience fun. Your treats and presents will be enjoyed in our blinged-out birthday tent, full of twinkly lights, stars and a birthday throne. Next, we take a group photo and the birthday child places their hand-print on our Wall of Fame! Face painting is available for an additional charge of $50 for up to 10 kids.
Your artist will choose a painting from our library or we can customize a painting for them. We also have a large selection of ceramic figurines for glazing. Simply pick a project, choose a date, and make a nonrefundable deposit of $50 (in store/or by check or we can invoice you on-line)
$250 for up to 10 children. Additional children are $25 each.
Typical party times:
Friday: 5-7/6-8 pm
Saturday: 10-12, 2-4, 5-7 pm (or 11-1 and 1-3 are sometimes available instead)
*Sundays: Any time after 12. We are normally closed on Sundays so a $75 after-hour fee applies.
Experience the “love of art” with your child without all the mess at home. And enjoy some "catch-up" time with other moms!

Our favorite time of year is SUMMER, and we are thrilled to be able to offer weekly art camps. We have 5 sessions throughout June/July and our goal is to learn new skills while having FUN! We mix up the projects during sessions for those art lovers who wish to attend multiple weeks.
6-9 year olds: Children will be exposed to several different art mediums over four days of FUN! They will learn to apply glaze to bisque pottery while designing their very own dinner plate and figurine. They’ll design a relief tile using rolled metal and inks. They will use art paper, stones, beads and other found materials to design their own head sculpture and learn to paint with acrylic on canvas for our group painting day.
10-15 year olds: Get ready for four days of artsy fun! We will focus on drawing, painting and composition. Your child may paint several canvases and explore print-making. They will be exposed to mixed media and may choose to create a fun, crafty project or or stick with perfecting their painting skills. We will structure each weekly session to the goals of your artist.

Check out our calendar and Facebook postings for Open Studio times. Open Studio allows you and your guests the freedom to come in without reservations and pick your own projects. We provide the ideas, supplies, aprons, clean-up and "a bit" of instruction, as time permits. And you have more freedom to create at a lower price. If you'd like us to prep a canvas or ceramic platter in advance please call ahead with instructions and we'll be happy to pencil in a design for you. You can view ideas under "Project Library" on our home page.
Family Fun Nights are similar to open studio but reservations are encouraged due to limited space. You are encourage to bring your family, friends and your favorite snacks and libation. Check out our calendar and Facebook postings for times and please text reservations to 816-853-4094. Keep in mind that space is limited so we prefer that most everyone choose a project to create.
