Online Art Parties for Kids!
It's the new way to party!
There's no doubt about it. A child's party is such a huge deal. And it should be! Their birthday is about celebrating them and their lives and the shiny brand new year that they are turning.
Social distancing has been tough on everyone. Let's fix this for our budding artists, creatives, adventurers. Let's give them something to remember their special day. Let's give them a chance to share it with their friends as we share our fun times and our milestones.
Parties for kids of all ages
These parties are great for children ages 6 - 12.
Art Party Package:
The art parties are hosted through the magic of Zoom. Each child will have the opportunity to join in on the screen (with their parent's permission). Each parent will receive instructions on how to join the party with link, time, and what to bring to the art table. Themes to choose from are listed below. Price includes all admin on my part as well as planning and setting up the virtual party.
During the online party, children will have a chance to chat to their friends, learn new ways of making art, share their artwork and more. If you prefer for the party to continue after the lesson, we can arrange for that in the party planning email.
Once I receive the email to book a party, I will discuss with you the theme and materials your child would like to use. I will then email links to materials needed for the party. The host family usually buys materials, create party bags then deliver to the guests. You can also choose materials children would already have at home (such as colouring pencils and markers).
Only those on the guest list can enter the party.

Art Party Themes for Kids:
Pop Art Portraits - This is great for any material. Do you want to learn how to make a portrait in the style of Andy Warhol or Roy Lichtenstein. Think bright colours or grids of dots and bold black outlines.
Paint Like A Wild Beast (Colourful Landscapes using Oil Pastels) - Children will learn how to draw a landscape in perspective. I will provide an image to work with based on what the birthday kid would like to draw. Mountains and waterfalls your thing? We can do that. Rivers and hills. No problem.
Under the Sea (oil pastels, watercolour paints with examples galore of what to see and make) - This one is great for learning how to use different art materials in one project. We will look at gorgeous underwater images then recreate what we have seen using oil pastels, watercolours and a special ingredient we all have at home. I won't spoil the surprise here.
Space Spectacular (oil pastels, watercolour paints with a slide show of the solar system) - In this session children will be inspired by spectacular space scenes. We will then practice using the materials before getting stuck in making the artwork.
Fairies in 3-D (paper, card, marker pens, glitter) - Children will talk about lots of fun ideas for where the fairies could live. We will look at different types of images to get our creative brains going. After drawing the background, children will create fairies, looking at How To Draw step by step methods then using their imaginations to complete the picture.
Day of the Dead (black paper and oil pastels) - This session is perfect for learning different shading and blending techniques. Learn how to create a realistic skull decorated with bright, vibrant flowers and lines.
How to Draw a Dragon (watercolour pencils) - Learn how to draw a dragon using watercolour pencils. Children will learn different techniques for using these as watercolours and pencils, how to shade and blend and so much more.
My Favourite Animal - Children can choose any animal they like. We can discuss art materials (Art Crayons, oil pastels, paint sticks on canvas and more) to use for this project.
Go Wild! You Choose! If you have ideas that aren't included in this list, just let me know. I have been teaching art lessons for years so am flexible with themes and materials.
Art Teaching Experience
Teaching art stories and art making techniques is something I am passionate about. Giving children the opportunity to learn new ways of making art whilst learning a little bit about art history is a true joy. I have been teaching art for nearly 20 years in schools, workshops, in the US and the UK. Collaborating with other artists, teachers, schools and even large international corporations have all been a wonderful part of my creative journey. I have a valid PVG check and am a qualified teacher.
