Birthday Party at Gallery Stratford

2019 Birthday Parties

You say it's your BIRTHDAY? Why then, we have just the party for you! Invite your friends to help celebrate your big day in a creative way. 

Here are some possible Birthday packages:

    • Painting Party: Be creative and let your imagination soar. Each attendee will experiment with colour and composition and leave with their own original painting on canvas using acrylic paints, or try their hand at watercolours on paper – you decide!
    • Button Making Party: Design, and create your own unique set of buttons to wear and share.  A variety of materials both dry and wet can be used to create amazing one of a kind statement pieces. Each participant can expect to make, on average 6-10 buttons each!  Our Educator will be responsible for operating the button machine safely, or when age-appropriate, supervising its safe use by participants. 
    • Printmaking Party: Participants will delve into the world of printmaking. Using printmaking tools, and learning safe techniques, artists will each come away with a series of their own original prints.
    • The Picasso: Taking inspiration from Picasso’s cubist movement, participants will make funky, colourful, cardboard masks.  Once the masks are completed, our educator will snap a group photo of everyone wearing their creations. We will email you the photo to share!  
    • Custom Art Party: We would be happy to work with you and your Birthday boy or girl to customize an art activity that best suits their day!
