Creative art is a common method of expression of young children, so why stifle it? Bring out their inner Picasso with these arts and craft party venues for kids. Not only do the hands-on activities entertain the children, it can feel therapeutic as they use their hands to paint vivid colour or mould an animal figurine.
Moreover, each guest gets to bring home his/her completed artwork as a unique keepsake. Whether it’s just an abstract drawing or a clay dinosaur figure, the art piece will always be a one-of-a-kind memento that reminds them of the party.
So if you’re thinking of throwing a memorable celebration this year, consider an arts and craft party. Let the arts and crafts party venue in Singapore transform into a meaningful social space for you and all your guests to bond as they chat, snack and celebrate over art.
1. Liberty Art Jam (Artify Studio)
Is your kid always drawing and colouring away? Then, a birthday art jam at Liberty Art Jam is perfect! Your child can draw and colour to his/her heart’s content for 2.5 hours.
The studio space is fully air conditioned. The space is furnished with two toilets, a mini fridge, a little pantry with local snacks and drinks, a water dispenser, Wi-Fi, tables (if you require), and a Bose SoundLink mini speaker so you can play background music. And, of course, canvas, paint, brushes and aprons will be provided.
Although there isn’t food, you are allowed to bring your own. Hence, you can buy a cake and have it delivered to the studio so that your guests can enjoy a slice of cake while painting.
