Birthday Party Planning Guide

Birthday Parties are always lots of fun, leaving everyone with great memories, but they're hard work to plan!! We've got some great ideas here to help you plan your little one's special day.



Let each child at the party get creative on their own stretched canvas just like a real artist. Our kids parties are in the workshop format to help promote the children's art development.

The children starts off with individual blank canvases, and are guided to complete their workshop painting. Children are welcome to customize their own piece with their favourite colours and personal touches so everyone's painting is unique, just like themselves!
