Birthday Parties

Children's art-making birthday party at the MacLaren Art Centre

Celebrate your Birthday at the MacLaren!

Invite your friends and family for a one-of-a-kind party at the art gallery and enjoy a creative, hands-on art activity. Birthday celebrations include a tour of the galleries, and a choice between three exciting art activities: painting, clay
sculpture or silk-screening. Children also make their own party-hats and create their own buttons!


Time: 2 hours per party, which includes a fun, interactive guided tour of the galleries and a hands-on art-making activity led by a professional artist.

Resources: We supply all of the art materials! Clients provide decorations, plates, cutlery, cups, napkins, cake, food, and drinks. NOTE: MacLaren policy does not allow lit birthday candles.

Cost: $250. A $125 (50%) nonrefundable deposit is required on booking. This fee includes up to 12 children (ages 5 to 14 years) and 3 adults. One adult supervisor is required for every 4 children. Larger parties may be accommodated upon request but additional charges apply. The balance of the fee is due on the day of the birthday party.
