Project examples for ages 4-10:

Painted Canvases: These can be done with a variety of themes. In the photo children taped out the first letter of their names and then added paint and decorations before removing the tape to show their letters.
Painted Embroidery Hoops: Children paint fabric in embroidery hoops and then paint wooden beads. They use plastic embroidery needles to weave string and beads into their fabric.
Dyed Salt Smoothies: Children dye salt a variety of colors. Then they create the ultimate rainbow smoothie! It's topped off with a straw, glue to seal it, and a label to describe their creation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do art activities last?

  • Art activities last 1 hour.

How long will art Strong teaching artists be at the party?

  • About 2 hours total. Art Strong teaching artists will arrive 30 minutes prior to art activity to set up and will stay 30 minutes after art activity for clean up.

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 plan the art activity 30 minutes to 1 hour into the party.

What happens if more children show up?

  • We will send you an invoice for $15 per extra child who shows up prior to the party.

What if less children show up?

  • You are still responsible for paying for the number of children you expected, even if less show up. We will leave behind any art materials that were not used.
