Since art is way more than just drawing, we chose several art mediums to work with so the girls could take home several different projects. We painted, sculpted, and inked and glittered. Creative messes are my favorite messes–actually the only mess I’m totally OK with. #ocdalert
We had little stations set up before the kids got to the party: the Art Gallery, Sculptor Studio, Stationary Shop, and the Starving Artist Cafe (for the snacks). In the art gallery, the girls had a canvas to paint in one solid base color and we let those dry while we did other projects. Then we added a monogram cut from Contact paper, stuck it down, and used business cards to scrape coordinating colors all over the canvas. When it dried, we were able to pull the monogram up and reveal the base color underneath. A really easy paint project to do together.

And to keep the creativity going, we sent the girls home with a tiny canvas, set of watercolors, and IKEA paintbrushes. Such a fun party, but the most fun was getting texts from moms the next day with pictures of their girls doing projects at home because they just couldn’t get enough. I love that. Amen for creative kids!
Here’s a SUPER quick Scope I did right before the party started 🙂
