Art Birthday Parties for Kids

Art birthday parties are a great way for your child and guests (ages 5-11) to do something fun and unique on his/her special day.

  • An art party can take place at your child’s school, at your home, at your neighborhood clubhouse, family church or even at a park!

  •  As the host, other than arranging for a location, all you need to provide is enough tables and chairs for all party participants.

We provide all art materials and our signature step-by-step art instruction so that all party participants take home a work of art.

  • In one hour, Kim Murdock (Artist and Owner of Afterschool Art and More) will teach your child and party guests (ages 5-11) how to draw with permanent marker on white, 9 X 12 inch, acid free art paper.

  • Each child will draw on his/her own paper to create an original work of art.

  • After drawing, Kim will provide markers for the children to finish their drawings.

  • Alternative media choices are: oil pastels, watercolor crayons, chalk pastel, colored pencils (Let us know if you prefer any of these.)

  • To learn more about Kim’s method of teaching, please read our FAQs.

  • To read what parents are saying about our programming, please read our Testimonials.

The most popular art birthday party lessons are: Pirate, Hedwig, Unicorn, R2D2, Dolphin, Butterfly, Giant Hamburger, Ice Cream Sundae, Dragon, Zebra, Elephant, Eiffel Tower, Castle

Thanks for a great party! I will definitely let our friends know about your camps and other services. See you in the near future!
