Invite your friends and family for a one-of-a-kind party at the Art Centre and enjoy a creative, hands-on art activity.  Birthday celebrations include a tour of the galleries, and a personalized art activity based on your child’s interests. Children may also make their own party hats or birthday crowns using a variety of craft supplies!

As with all of our rentals, birthday parties are subject to availability of space and our instructors.  Please give us as much advanced notice as possible when requesting to book a birthday party.

Clean-up: The room must be cleaned up and all decorations removed within 1 hour after the end of the party. 

Resources: We supply all of the art materials! You provide the decorations, plates, cutlery, cups, napkins, cake, food, and drinks.
