Frequently Asked Questions

How long do art activities last?

  • Art activities last 45 minutes. 

Where are your birthday parties held?

  • Art Strong birthday parties are held at our studio at 43-67 11th St, Long Island City NY, 11101

Do all participants need to be at the party before the art activity can begin?

  • It is best if all participants can be making art together. That way, they won’t miss any steps of the projects. We have found that it is best to start the art activity 15 minutes into the party.

Do you supply decorations?

  • Our studio is a beautiful backdrop for your party! You are welcome to bring your own decorations and can enter the space up to 30 minutes prior to your party to decorate.
My child has a specific idea for their project. Would that be possible?

 

  • We can try our best! Give us a call/email so we can learn more about what they are dreaming of and we can brainstorm project ideas to make it happen. There is an additional fee for custom projects depending on material and prep costs.

Is drop off allowed? 

  • Drop off is highly encouraged for all parties with children ages 5 and up. Parties of children ages 4 and under require 1 parent or caregiver to be present. 

What days and times can I have my party?

  • Parties are reserved for Saturdays from 11am – 1pm or 2pm-4pm. Select Sundays are also available. If you are interested in a different day or time reach out to us and we will do our best to make it work!

Is there a deposit required to book my party?

  • Yes.  You are required to pay a $150 non-refundable party deposit to book your party and save your date.  This will go towards your final party cost.

When is the final payment due?

  • Final payment is due 1 week prior to your party date. Late payments incur a $25 late fee.

What if I don’t know my exact head count?
