Birthday Parties & Art Parties
Art parties are a great way to celebrate a birthday or other occasion. Projects, including tie-dye, clay, jewelry-making, and printmaking, will make the party a fun, unforgettable event, and everyone will go home with his or her very own creation. We know how to create a party, whether for a child's birthday or any other special event! For more information on celebrating your child's birthday at the Museum, please view our birthday party brochure.
