Children's Art Parties

Children’s Art Parties 

Children’s art parties can take place at the studio and cost £150 for group of 10 children and £15 per extra child. The studio can fit around 12 children ( 15 small ones).  Jo is happy to discuss party ideas with you. Parties last for 1 and 1/2 hours. All art materials are supplied.  Popular themes the children enjoy are: Magical creatures, nature parties, animals, illuminated initials, abstract fun, pixel art,  Jo is happy to discuss other themes with you.

Why not have a picnic in the park after or organise sandwich boxes at the Oaks cafe? Or, if the weather is not looking great, for a small extra cost, you can eat in the studio. There’s plenty of parking nearby in the FREE car park. So if you are looking for art parties for children in Surrey, look no further.

There is plenty of room for siblings and parents to stay and chat whilst the creative fun is taking place. The cafe can cater for the party and also supply teas, coffees, ice-creams for your guests. After the party, why not have fun in beautiful Oaks park.

Take the stress away from tidying up at home and give your child the freedom to be creative! Please email if you would like to find out more information.

Jo was very friendly and she welcomed us into her new studio. The girls felt as if they were real artists when they used a variety of paints, pencils, pastels and crayons to create some unique pictures. Jo encouraged them to mix interesting colour combinations to create their own still life compositions. They were inspired by the pretty flowers on the table and the autumn scenery of the park that surrounded them. Jo was able to give them some great tips on how to improve their basic drawing skills. She tailored the activities to suit the age group and the theme. Everyone had fun learning how to make bath bombs and choosing their favourite colour to go into the mix. I would highly recommend booking if you love art and wish to experience the calmness of the studio. It has been my daughter’s favourite party to date.  Thank you Jo

When asked by my 11 year old son to have an ‘art party’ to celebrate his birthday, I had no idea where to start; good old Google it was! There’s not a lot out there, but I did come across Jo Sharpe, and despite having good reviews on her site, I had no direct referral to base my decision on. I went out on a limb and booked a date. We were not disappointed! In 11 years of parties, this was the most relaxed, calm and engaging two hours spent with 10 children. Children who admitted not really liking art admitted they really enjoyed it and for my son it was’ the best party ever!’ – so win-win all round.  A massive thanks to Jo for her patience and guidance in teaching the children new drawing skills. Would highly recommend as an alternative to traditional kids birthday parties.
