Arty Parties! Creative Birthday Parties for Kids.


Celebrate your birthday at Gloworm Studios! Learn to create something new while having a blast with all of your friends.

Some of our activities include:

  • Watercolour Cupcake Painting: Learn to draw a series of cupcakes then use your imagination to design the toppings and colours. We use coloured patterned papers, glitter and beads to stick on to our paintings as decorations. Warning: you might be hungry for birthday cake after this yummy activity!
  • Paper Crowns: In this activity we paint and draw flowers, leaves and/or feathers and attach them on to a paper crown for each party goer to wear. We paint our creations with watercolour paint as well as metallic silver and gold paints.
  • Hot Air Balloon Collage: In this activity we begin by painting a big colourful hot air balloon and then use different coloured and patterned papers to stick on different elements of our design.
  • Bunting: Each child creates there own bunting that we string on to colourful ribbons. Each child will go home with a beautiful new decoration to hang in their room!
  • Animal painting: The birthday child picks their favourite animal and we create an animal portrait using coloured pencil and paints.
  • Tree group activity: Each little artist creates a painting of something they might find in a tree. Together we cut out our paintings and stick them on to a giant paper tree on the walls at Gloworm Studios. The tree can then be taken home by the birthday girl or cut into different sections for each artist to take home with them.
  • Flower Pots: Design and paint your very own terracotta flower pot! * Ages 8 and up 

Our activities can also be tailor made to suit a particular theme or interest of the birthday child, don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss your ideas.

Prices begin at $250 (1.5 hour party) $300 (2 hour party) for up to 10 children and $20 per child after that. Our maximum number of children for parties is 14. Minimum age for our parties is 5 years old. Our parties run for 1.5 hours - 2 hours depending on activity.  

*Please note: Gloworm Studios is a cozy space therefore we can not accommodate parents of party goers. The birthday child's parents are welcome of course!

Give us a call or email to discuss our parties further and to book a date!
