Birthday Parties

art partyAre you trying to figure out where to hold your child’s next birthday party?  Search no more! Alpine Arts Center will help you throw an unforgettable party that is not only fun for all involved, but incredibly easy for you to plan as a parent.  We know how stressful these things can be, so we will do all we can to make this party headache-free!  We will set up and lead the party and will do all of the clean up after it is finished.  All you have to do is provide the cake!

Art parties are perfect for any age child, from toddler to teen, and party ideas are listed below to help you choose the perfect party for every age birthday girl or boy.  Included in the cost of the party are smocks for all who attend, decorations, supplies for whatever project you choose, silverware, plates, and napkins. Alpine Arts Center can also create an Evite for your party invitations if you supply us with an email list of the guests. 

Each party will last for 2 hours; an hour and a half will be designated for the project and a half an hour will be set aside for food, drinks, cake, and presents.  For a party catering to 10 children or fewer, the cost is $225.  For parties over 10 children, please add $10 per additional child. Please call Alpine Arts Center to discuss cost options for parties of more than 25 children.  

Did you know Alpine Arts Center can provide wine, beer, or mimosas to entertain the adults while the children play?  All alcohol must be purchased through Alpine Arts Center and served by our staff.

Please reserve your party day at least two weeks ahead.  Reservations are accepted on a first come first serve basis.  An $100 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your reservation and order necessary supplies, which will be applied to your final bill.

Schedule Your Birthday Party   

You and the birthday girl or boy can choose from a number of party projects.  Here are some ideas to pique your interest:

Toddlers and Young Artists:
Choose your child's favorite animal, movie character, or storybook and we'll create a party based on that theme. Consider themes such as "Prince/Princess Party" where we decorate crowns, tote bags, and wands/swords, "Butterfly/Ladybug Party" where we make butterflies and ladybugs out of construction paper, paint, and pipe cleaners, or "Finding Nemo Party" where children make an underwater mixed-media painting of their favorite scene from the move.  Kids will love being creative and their artwork makes the perfect party favor.  See below for a few more ideas!
