Art Parties

A child’s birthday party can be made extra special by celebrating at the Bakersfield Museum of Art. Enjoy a private space in one of our classrooms while a Museum instructor provides an age-appropriate art project for the birthday child and their guests. Each party includes personal time, and each participant will take home a hand-made project.

Prices Starting at $250
Up to 10 students; $20 per additional student

    What's included:

    A private art classroom
    1 hour of personal time (presents, cake-eating, etc.)
    1-hour art project led by a museum educator
    A take-home canvas for each student
    Up to 3 art projects inspired by the birthday theme
