Delight your guests and invite them to an art party at The Art Factory. Our vibrant art studios are the perfect atmosphere for a celebration!

We have a fantastic range of activities to inspire boys and girls from 4 years of age through to some sophisticated crafts for teens. Your guests will all have fun creating a masterpiece that they will be thrilled to take home at the end of the party. Parties are hosted by our enthusiastic team of party hosts who are passionate about art and love working with kids.

We offer 90 minute parties for kids 4-7 yrs and offer the choice of a 2 hour option for kids 8 years and older.

For the first part of the party, the kids participate in the art workshop, creating their masterpiece. Our staff lead them through the workshop, ensuring all kids make something fantastic and have a great time in the process. During this time the birthday child sits in our spectacular birthday throne and all the guests contribute in a special wish pot that is later presented to the birthday child. The last 30 mins is time for the party food and birthday cake. At the completion of the party the kids collect their masterpieces to take home.
