Instantly upon asking my soon to be 11 year old daughter what kind of birthday party she wanted this year she knew. She had her heart set on a art party complete with canvases, easels and lots of color. I love this idea not only was it great for her age but with a few modifications it would be great for younger and older kids.
These crazy young ladies had a great time!
Decorations were very simple. I bought cheap paint brushes at my local hardware store and painted the handles. Then I attached a ribbon and had a instant banner.
I found a fabric on clearance at Hobby Lobby and let it be the inspiration. I hung some of the fabric on the curtain rod and made 2 table runners. I then used paper lanterns and tissue paper pom poms all over.
No art party would be complete without easels. My husband made ours and I think they turned our perfectly.
Each girl had a packet of how to draw and ideas and inspirations. But the girls were encouraged to paint whatever they wanted.
Everyone had a 11×14 and 8×10 canvas as well as a wooden letter
A colorful surprise awaited the girls when the cake was cut. They all commented on how they loved all the colors.
Here were just a few of the works of art from the day.
