Birthday Parties

Host your child’s next birthday party at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond and treat 12 children, ages five to 15 years old, to a private art class in one of VisArts’ studios.

Enjoy instruction by a professional artist and up to two hours of party time, plus half an hour for set-up and clean-up. Each child leaves with a take-home art project and a VisArts favor bag. Parents are responsible for bringing cake, snacks, paper products and serving utensils.
