Order pizza or a full meal from our list of caterers. We allow cupcakes and cakes to be brought in, but, we don’t allow any other food item to be brought into the studio by the customer.

Make the studio yours! Bring decorations, balloons and a cake, etc. Just let us know beforehand.
Typically people come in and get settled for 15 minutes. Then kids paint for about 30 minutes to an hour. Then we do pizza and birthday cake. Then kids tend to run around like maniacs as their sugar buzz kicks in. Some continue painting, some just play. We also provide paper for the kids to draw an arty birthday card for their birthday friend and much like “pin the tail on the donkey” kids enjoy our special pin the accessory on Picasso.
We can host parties at any of our locations or we can come to you. Our studios are designed to get messy. We don’t care if paint gets on the wall or floors – in fact we like when that happens; it adds character. The best part for you is that we clean up the mess and painting materials.
Dupont: Minimum 15 , Maximum 40 painters. Brookland: 20 painters. Art Underground: 30 painters. Parents are welcome to come and hang out.
