Parties For Kids (Kinder on up!)

Walk In & Create

Marmalade Skies Birthday pARTies!

Marmalade Skies is the perfect fun and creative place to celebrate a new year with a new experience with arts & crafts.  We host art parties for Kindergarteners on up, and we also occasionally host Kids' Night Out events as well, so keep an eye on our calendar.


At Marmalade Skies, our parties focus on the creative process, allowing each participant to feel that they have created a memorable keepsake! For this reason, our experienced art instructors highly recommend age-appropriate projects. Please understand that while the birthday child may be advanced in their artistic skills, not all of the guests may be. Keeping this in mind, please remember “party time” is vastly different than an art class. We hope you’ll trust our expertise in helping you plan a memorable arty party!


All Parties Include:
1. Up to two or three hours of party time.
2. All materials necessary to create art.
3. Party instructors provide all your party needs for a great time!
4. Set-up & clean-up. Feel free to bring any additional decorations. Arrive 20 minutes early to decorate!
5. Designated spaces for art, food and drinks. Have pizzas arrive no later than 20 minutes after party begins.
6. Level 1-3 packages feature a gift bag station for each guest to carry artwork home.
    This doubles as a ‘goodie bag’— just add treats!


Additional Information:
• As our parties are geared towards CHILDREN'S parties, drop-off parties are encouraged so that we may focus on having a fun event for your young art stars. (See below.)

• A $100 DEPOSIT is required at the time of booking. Deposit is directly applied to party cost and is non-refundable if canceled within one week of scheduled date.
• Please book your party at least two weeks ahead of time.

• Please call 3 days prior to your party with a final guest count.

• Gratuity appreciated!


Drop-off Party Information:

Due to the limitations of our studio space, we recommend drop-off parties.  We understand that this is not every parent's cup-o-tea, and we do encourage parents to stay if your child has special needs, or is in PreK or Kindergarten.  In general, if your child is in First Grade on up, we feel they're good for a drop-off party, but feel free to stay if you like!  We definitely want you to feel at home in our studio.  Just know that we have educated, professional staff that have worked with children for many years and can manage fun group events.  If you would like to have a party where all the parents stay, please ask about booking your party at our 10:00-12:00 time slot.  This slot is specifically open for our younger crowd. 

How do I let everyone know that this is a drop-off party?  Easy!  Your invitations should be clear about the type of party being given, and the date, time, and location of the party. You definitely want to give both a start time and an end time to avoid confusion about when parents should return for their children. Wording such as “Drop off at 2:00 pm, and pick-up at 4:00 pm” should make that clear.
