KIDS BIRTHDAY PARTIES


The Grimsby Public Art Gallery is pleased to offer this opportunity to members with a family membership. Birthday Parties can be booked for groups of up to 15 children. You provide the cake, decorations and refreshments, we provide an artist to instruct the children in a craft or art project. We are happy to customize the activity to fit a theme if you have one in mind! Parties are 3 hours, with the art class lasting approximately 1 hour to 1.5 hours. The remaining time can be used for refreshments, games, gifts and cake. Parties must be organized during regular gallery hours and around Studio availability so we may not be able to accommodate your preferred time. It is a good idea to book your party early.
Fees for a 3 hour party are $175. A $50 security deposit is required on all room rentals. Media available: Painting, drawing, collage and/ or printmaking.



Remember ~ The Grimsby Public Art Gallery offers a wide range of programming for students at both the Elementary and Secondary School levels, including exhibition tours, and virtual exhibitions that bring the art to the classroom! Our Education Guide is available at the gallery for further information. Make sure your child’s teacher is aware of this great opportunity to enrich their students’ art education!
