Kids Birthday Parties


“Wonderful! Beautiful party! The kids really enjoyed it!” – T.B.

“The kids had a great time; it was an excellent party. Your staff were so helpful and nice, too.” – A.L

“The party was wonderful! The Artbarn staff did a fantastic job — they were extremely helpful and accommodating and made the party a real success. Our daughter and her guests all had a great time and went home with some beautiful pieces of art!” – MR

“I just wanted you to know how great the birthday party was at Art Barn, yesterday. It seemed to be loved by parents and kids alike!” JA

“Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to your team for facilitating such a terrific party for my son. You may be amused to know that when I asked him if he enjoyed his party, he said, “no.” Me (slightly horrified and appalled): “why not?” Son: “it was too short!”    A.L.

Why not throw your child a custom painting birthday party? Whatever their interest, we can work with you to set up a fun party which includes a unique painting project. At the end of the event, each guest will take home their acrylic masterpiece on a real canvas, popped into a white paper shopping bag that can be decorated to match any theme. Some of the themes we have worked on before include Pokemon, princesses, unicorns, dogs, and landscapes. We can also make it a party in the theme of your favourite artist: think Picasso or Klimt. We can help customize the white paper shopping bags too! We have worked with party-goers to turn the bags into a favourite Pokemon character, or a glittery rainbow explosion! Add your own loot to the bag and you are done!

You will have access to the full 2000 square feet of Artbarn. We set up the West Studio with everything kids need to complete their art projects. The chalk board will be transformed with birthday wishes and a cute picture keeping with the theme. Painting smocks will be provided.

The East Studio will be set up for snacks and cake. We ask parents to supply the decorations, but we can help you decorate the space. We also offer button making at a small additional charge.

The parties run for one and a half hours. There will be three specially trained staff on site to guide the painting session, help you set up and serve food, and hand out loot bags. Come up to 15 minutes early to drop off supplies. Pull up beside the school on Oriole Parkway. We will help you unload.

We try to think of everything for your birthday girl or boy, so you don’t have to! If there is something we can help with, and we haven’t mentioned it here, we will definitely do our best to get it done!!!

Here are some popular birthday themes :

– unicorns

– cats + dogs

– Pokemon

– abstract

– landscape

Fee – $30 per child. A minimum of 12 children – deposit of 50% required upon booking.

Corporate Painting Events

We host corporate painting events in our studios and off-site. We have worked with the CNIB, The Anne Johnston Health Centre, The Home Depot, Camp Oochigeas, Down Syndrome Assoc. of Toronto and Zeifmans LLP. Our art teachers work closely with our clients to ensure that the projects fit in with the vision for the event. 

Private Arty Parties

We enjoy working with you to create special celebrations. We can help with any of your art needs! For example, we have helped families create large custom designed canvases for their home. As well we have organized Paint Nights for groups of adults, bachelorette parties or adult birthdays. We take care of liquor licenses, art teachers, set up and decorations. We can even supply wine glasses! If you have an idea for an art party, call us! We can help!
