Art Parties

A fun, collaborative art experience!

Looking for a new, fun and exciting way to celebrate your birthday? Throw an Art Party!

Art Parties are available to children, adults, special groups, family reunions, work parties and retreats.

So what happens at a typical ArtParty?

Using the wide range of live animals and 3D models at the school, each attendant makes a small canvas painting to take home. The birthday child creates an acrylic on canvas painting made with the help of friends and family. Each child signs the back of the collaborative painting so the birthday child has a wonderful token to remember their special day.

Instruction time is typically a little over 2 hours with another 30-45 minutes for eating food and opening gifts.

Party favors, decorations and food are the responsibility of the participants.

Thematic Parties

Thematic Parties are available by request for no additional cost. Here are a few ideas from recent parties:

Découpage Party

Attendants use multi colored tissue paper and gel gloss medium to make compositions on canvas. Compositions come out very vibrant and colorful. Due to the cost of materials, this party has a surcharge of $50.

Flower Party

Participants create an arrangement from the many silk flower and vases at Seven Directions and make paintings from what they see.

Animal Party

Working from over 75 live creatures and countless realistic animal models, participants create paintings of a single creature.

Monster and/or Superhero Party

Using the many monsters and superhero action figures in our tub of monsters, participants make a painting of a single creature.

Art Parties are usually scheduled during two blocks on Saturdays, 10AM to 1PM, 2PM to 5PM. Occasionally, Friday and Sunday parties are available.
