BIRTHDAY ART PARTIES FOR CHILDREN  

Make your child's next birthday party fun and arty. A birthday party at Art Est. is full of imaginative art activities. Everything is hands-on and the children can choose from a range of engaging and entertaining art making, such as printmaking, painting, mixed media, creative collage, and more.

The art parties are held in our inspiring warehouse art studios and gallery, so children feel like real artists from the moment they arrive. They begin their art journey in our gallery where we await the arrival of your guests. The children then move into the art studio which is set with easels, paints and everything they need to create a masterpiece. With Art Est. art aprons to complete the picture, their art experience begins!

Parties are two and a half hours duration, which includes the art workshop, all art materials, finished masterpieces to take home ready to hang in your own home art gallery. Bring your own catering, birthday cake and treats for party time at the end.

Family Parties

A lively printmaking party. Children will learn simple and effective printmaking techniques and, using their own designs or ours, will create imaginative printworks on paper. They begin with drawings, learning what will work best as a print. Then children are shown how to transfer their design onto their own etching 'plate' to create pictures, bookmarks or cards. Each child will learn how to ink up their 'plate' and use the etching press to print their artwork on quality printmaking paper.
