Host your child’s birthday party with us!
River Arts on Water Studio hosts birthday parties! Come celebrate, make a special project, and leave the clean-up to us!
Birthday parties are two hours long, with the first hour dedicated to creating a fun art project, and the second hour meant for cake and presents. All you have to do is pick the project you want to complete, pick a date, and invite friends and family. We’ll have the art project ready for you and your guests when you arrive!
Choose Your Party Project: Custom activities led by our instructor!
Painting Party (Ages 6+) This is a great option for everyone. Partygoers will be instructed step by step on how to make a fantastic painting! The birthday boy or girl can choose the theme of the painting when the party is booked, and our instructor will build the class around that theme.
Paint Your Own Pottery Party (Ages 6+) Take your party to the next level by bringing in potter Heidi Clayton of Center Ground Studios. Heidi will bring a variety of fired clay objects that kids can choose to paint. She also brings glazes, stencils, examples, and helpful tips to make your project unique. Projects will be taken to be fired at Heidi’s studio, packaged, and returned for pick up at River Arts within a week of the party date. Price varies depending on type of objects; see complete policy below and contact Kristina for the specifics.
