Art Parties

An Art Party at the Armory can be for a birthday or any kind of celebration where you’re looking for a fun and festive atmosphere, plus an artistic experience. 

Make your next party an Art Party at the Armory! An Armory teaching artist will lead an art-making project for you and your friends in our main studio space. Let us worry about the spilled paint and supplies.

Have a creative birthday party filled with fun in our spacious, inspiring art studio. An Armory teaching artist will lead the children through an art-making project that they take home afterwards. Parents can hang out, relax and see some art while the children are engaged in creative art making.

Art Project Choices for Birthday Parties

Please note that the themes give the Armory teaching artist a focus for the group. Each project is designed to challenge the child's imagination and abilities while providing an opportunity for playful exploration. A variety of materials are used with each project i.e. baubles, buttons, beads, paint, paper, pipe cleaners, and more.

Art projects are led by Armory teaching artists who have lots of experience working with all ages of children. Projects are clay-based for the most part. We have aprons for the kids to wear, but they should dress appropriately.

These projects were created for children 3 – 12 years old. Projects include:

Clay project themes

  • Animals
  • Dinosaurs
  • Insects
  • Dragons
  • Figures
  • Secret Gardens
  • Masks
  • Volcanoes

Cardboard projects themes

  • Princess Crowns
  • Crazy Crowns
