Arty Parties

Let ArtHaus host your child’s birthday party with an hour and a half art activity and scheduled time for treats and presents afterwards. Perfect for ages 4+, we can accommodate up to 16 youngsters.

Parties must be scheduled minimum of 2 weeks in advance and we request that at least one parent / chaperone be present. Outside food, drink, and decorations welcome!

We are happy to accommodate private gatherings for adults, too. An arty party at ArtHaus is the perfect way to celebrate a bridal shower, family reunions, or a special girls night out.

Pricing starts at $120 for up to 6 children or adults and includes all project materials and instruction. Additional participants can be added at $20 per person. No experience needed; a talented ArtHaus instructor will be there to walk you through the process and help get imaginations churning!
