Art Est Art Parties

Make your child’s next birthday party fun and arty! A birthday party at Art Est. is hands-on and every child walks away with a masterpiece based on the chosen theme. Choose from a range of engaging and entertaining art making, such as printmaking, painting, cartooning and our new wheel throwing pottery or ceramic sculpture parties.


The art parties are held in our inspiring warehouse art studios and gallery, so children feel like real artists from the moment they arrive. You will have access 30 minutes before the party starts to set up the party food and any decorations. Meet and greet your guests in the gallery, pop one of our aprons on all the kids and then your art tutor will lead the kids in to the art studio to create their masterpieces in a structured step by step session.

Parties are 2.5 hours duration and generally held on Saturday afternoons from 2.30pm-5.00pm when you have exclusive use of our studios. Art making is up to 2 hours depending on the activity, with 30 minutes (or more) for your Birthday cake and party food.
