Artbeat Birthday Parties
Other Ideas: The Glass Bar; Jam Time; The Painting Place (formerly Kids Place 4 Fun); Honey Pot Hill Orchard; ImprovBoston
Artbeat's craft studio hosts birthday parties for children ages five through the teens. Parties include one hour of craft time to complete a project from Artbeat's list (beaded jewelry, sand art, rolled beeswax candles, and more). Children receive guided instruction on art projects. One half hour is allotted for kids refreshments.
Because the studio is small, refreshments should be relatively simple. Cake works, but there is no freezer for ice cream. We suggest you brng ice cream cups or pops in a cooler, if ice cream is a must-have. Juice boxes are handy and keep clutter to a minimum.
Invitations & Favors:
Party planning is made simple. Artbeat provides the invitations (you send them out), helium balloons, and party bags with favors.
Party goers should be old enough to focus on a project for the full hour. (Ages 5 thru teens is recommended). All birthday activity takes place in the studio; wandering out to the store area is not permitted.
The Artbeat store/studio houses a unique collection of fun and creative gifts, do-it-yourself kits, and specialty arts and crafts materials such as rubber stamps, watercolor supplies, and weaving looms.
A great idea for kids and adults to try the drop-in open studio for craft projects. The Artbeat hands-on art studio is open to the public every day and serves artists from ages 4 to adult.
Art Classes for Kids:
Artbeat's new series of art classes for kids ages 7 and older offers children who are interested in art a time and place to learn new skills and to explore their own creative interests. Class size is small (limited to 8) to allow individual attention. These classes are held after school, and supplement Artbeat's daily drop-in art program.
Instructor Nicole Lattuca has a degree in fine art and graphic design, and has taught art to children in school and camp programs, and in private classes. Her teaching combines real life observation with classroom techniques, to help students develop skills that they can take with them for life.
