If your child enjoys making things with their hands, this is the perfect way to celebrate their birthday! There are three different options for parties: a traditional Monart Drawing or Painting Party, a Craft Party or a Lego Party. Each type of party can be for any age above three years. Our creative parties are geared for fun and learning! The cost for a party is $250 for 12 attendees including the Birthday person; for any additional guests, please budget $5 per person. These fun two hour long parties can be scheduled on Fridays after school or Saturday afternoons. Monart will provide all the needed art or Lego materials and 1-2 instructors, depending on the age and size of the party. The art or Lego part of the party is approximately 90 minutes, with the remaining 30 minutes for refreshments and presents. Please bring three plastic table clothes for the refreshment tables, treats (we suggest cookies for easy cleanup) and bottled water or juice. Many parents do not send home a “treat bag” with guests because each guest will make several pieces of art to take home (one piece of art or craft will be created at a Lego party). A deposit of $150 will be required to schedule your party, please use the online payment processing link below. Please have two date options and themes ready when you call to schedule your party. The more we know about the birthday person, the more creative we can be with art and craft projects at the party. You give us the theme or ideas, and we will do the rest! Descriptions below are only ideas for parties; we can tailor your party to your tastes!
Monart Drawing, Painting or Sculpture Party: Best for ages 8 and up. Draw or paint your favorite animal, vehicle, mythical creature or cartoon character! This type of party does require all guests to arrive at the party at the same time. If carpooling is not an option, we suggest having the refreshments at the beginning of the party so any late-comers will not be behind in the art project. This would be for a more mature or serious artist, as it does require several steps of instructions and little socializing time. End projects tend to be very high quality keepsakes. Examples of past parties include Dale Chihuly style sculptures, Paris, under the sea, painting gardens or butterflies, unicorns, jungle animals, horses and dozens more!
Craft Party: Best for any age that wants more of a party atmosphere. Guests will rotate at their leisure between at least a dozen craft stations. For all guests under 4 years old we ask that a parent remain for additional support. Past party themes include: rainbows, painting, dinosaurs, vehicles, princesses and pirates, snakes and reptiles, zoo animals and many more! Craft stations may include foam 3D animals, wands, swords or crowns, crayon rubbing and tempera paint creations, collage, glitter glue activities, animal faces, puppets, watercolor, wooden animals or just about any craft idea to fit your theme! The creative Monart instructors are all former classroom teachers and bring a wealth of ideas to party planning!
Lego Party: Available for both boys and girls ages 4-12, all skill levels will find a Lego party enjoyable. The available curriculums include Story Starters, Early Simple Machines, Simple Machines and Motorized Mechanisms. Story Starters, Early Simple Machines and Simple Machines are used for ages 4-8 and Motorized Mechanisms are used for ages 9-12 (Motorized Mechanisms is an advanced curriculum and the entire party will be spent building with Legos). A typical Lego party for ages 4-8 includes free build time and a coordinating craft as guests are arriving. Next, a story will be read to the group and a Lego scene then built inspired by the story. We can tailor this part to the birthday person’s liking. For example, a theme for a past party was Lego and dinosaurs. A 3D foam dinosaur was created by each guest and then printed on with Lego bricks to create scale patterns! A dinosaur book was then read to the group and a “dino land” was created with Legos. Countless other themes could be incorporated with the Lego curriculum including vehicles, safari, zoo, construction, food and restaurant, mythical legends and creatures, and many more. This is the perfect party for any child who is creative and likes to build with their hands!
