Painting with Vacation Bible School

Good Shephard VBS Shooting Stars

We had a wonderful time painting shooting stars with some star painters with some VBS kids this week. Love how they all did something a little different to personalize their paintings.

Even the pre-K got into the fun with their own paintings of butterflies. We use washable paints when we work with Pre-K kids and they have a blast mixing the colors all together.

We are available to go on-site to your VBS or other youth program. Just call 251-343-2423 to schedule our paint party visit.

Paint Party Studios Kids Summer Art Camp 2015

 

We’re having another great week of Paint Party Studios Kids Summer Art Camp 2015. This week our Art Element is Form and we are studying Pablo Picasso and Cubism. Our talented campers are creating vibrant color cubist-inspired art all week. Below you can see some cubist portraits in the style of Picasso that campers painted on Tuesday.

If you still need to register your child for Paint Party Studios Kids Summer Art Camp, we’ve updated the online registration form to show only the weeks remaining between now and August to make it easier to register.

All weeks listed are available, but Week 5 (July 7-10) is close to full (we’ll close registration at 30 – we currently have over 20). If you are looking for a week that doesn’t have 20+ kids, currently Week 6 (July 14-17), Week 7 (July 21-24) & Week 8 (August 4-7) all have space available.

Every week we study a new Art Element and another famous artist and take inspiration from his or her artistic style for our projects for the week. On Tuesdays we introduce our element in our drawing class, on Wednesdays we introduce our famous painter for the week and paint something in the style of that painter, on Thursdays we create either a 3-D or recycled art project inspired by our famous painter or our Art Element and on Friday we finish up earlier projects or introduce a short new project before we have our pizza party.

Little Painters – Ages 3-5

Available Weekday Mornings Tues-Fri 10am-12pm

 

Tempera Paints2We’ve set aside a special morning session for ages 3-5 to use washable paints to create their own masterpiece. Cost is $10 per child and paintings take about 30 minutes or so to complete. Please call ahead for reservations 251-343-2423 as we will be open by appointment only between 10am and 12pm. We welcome birthday or other special occasion groups – just let us know when you make your reservation so we can have a party table set up for your group.

 
We’ve had some parents ask if older children can attend Little Painters. Yes, children up to age 7 can attend Little Painters so it’s a great option if you have a pre-school child and another child age 6 or 7. During this time we will only be using washable paints and kids have the option of a sketch from the gallery or starting with a blank canvas or watercolor paper. Some days we’ll be introducing some fun new art ideas that kids love – always just $10 per child for the morning sessions.

We are thrilled and excited to announce that renovations at our Olde Towne Daphne location have begun!  We are on track for an early August grand opening.  Once the dust settles, we will have an announcement for back-to-school events, after-school classes and a class schedule for adults & children.  Check back soon!  In the meantime, we couldn’t be more thrilled with our  sunset view a short walk from the studio!

Kids Camp Kandinsky We are offering a new event at Paint Party Studios – Parents Night Out – Kids Art Night Ages 6+ from 6-8pm on Saturday June 20th. And we’re launching it just in time for Mom to treat Dad to a special pre-Father’s Day romantic dinner while the kids have fun working on an art project and eating pizza.

We know how hard it is to find a sitter so why not treat the kids to their own fun night out while you go have a nice dinner? For just $25 per child, you can drop them off at 6pm and pick them up at 8pm. They’ll be busy with art projects and pizza while you get a much deserved date night out. If you can’t make it right at 6pm that’s okay – they can be a few minutes late but you’ll still need to come for them at 8pm when we finish up.

We’ll be offering Parents Night Out – Kids Art Night Ages 6+ every other Saturday so if you can’t make it this week – call to reserve for July 18th (sorry the every-other-Saturday falls on 4th of July so the next one is a stretch). If you can’t wait until July 18th – call 251-343-2423 to reserve for this Saturday, June 20th. We strongly recommend reservations as seating for this is limited so we can only take walk-ins if we have seats still available.

Each Kids Art Night will feature some fun instructor-led art project, two slices of pizza per child and a juice drink. If you would prefer to provide your child’s dinner, we have a fridge and a microwave available at the studio. If children finish the instructor-led art project early, we provide drawing pencils and paper so they can keep the creativity going until you come to pick them up.

Kids Camp KleeSome weeks we’ll be learning about a master artist and drawing or painting in a work inspired his or her paintings and other weeks we may be more whimsical and do some art themed around a popular movie or game. You never know what’s in store on Kids Art Nights but we know it will be producing some fun art that the kids will enjoy.

Parents Night Out – Kids Art Night is for children ages 6-12. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate children younger than 6 for this event and we find kids 13 and over just aren’t that into hanging out with the younger ones. You’re welcome to bring the Little Painters (ages 3-5) to a weekday morning session (see our website) and the older kids are always welcome on weekday afternoons, Friday nights or Saturday afternoons (see our calendar).

If you have a group and want to join us on Saturday Adult Open Studio nights – we have room – we’re still the largest studio in Mobile – you can bring more than just one date – we don’t judge! Just call first 251-343-2423 so we can reserve a table for you if you’re bringing more than +1.

PP1049 Feel the BeatAs always, if you email or call with your gallery selection we’ll have it sketched when you arrive. But we’ve also put together some new idea books of images not yet in our gallery so you’re welcome to choose once you’ve arrived and then just give us a few minutes to get it sketched up for you.

For those of you who are new to Open Studio – we provide you with a pencil sketch on the canvas, an apron, your paints and brushes and instructions to get started. We then have roaming artists to guide you through your painting so you can produce your own unique masterpiece to take home.
