Birthday Party Q & A
When do you need a final headcount of attendees? Four days prior to the party, The Art spark will need a final headcount of guests. This will be the number of guests that will be paid for the day of the party. We use this number to purchase an appropriate amount of supplies for the party projects.
Parties can only be held in our studio on Saturdays or Sundays (any time 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM). How many children can come to the party? 20 is the maximum number of children that can attend a party at The Art Spark.
When is a good time to book a party? Our schedule tends to be more open when you book 2-3 months in advance. The latest we will book a party is 2 weeks in advance, given that we have availability. If the party is Creative Tots, the total number cannot exceed 10. (This is because each child will have an adult with them at this party.)
How would it seem more like a birthday party than an actual class? We try to make the child who’s birthday it is feel like the star! We choose projects that are what the birthday boy/girl would like very much and have to do with the theme that they choose (if they would like a theme). We consistently reiterate that it is his/her’s birthday. We eat cake and have drinks which also makes it much different from class.
Will the children work together or independently on their projects? For birthday parties the kids do individual projects so that they have special projects to take home that are all their own. We do team projects in class and camp to encourage working with another and communication.
Are masks required?
Yes, masks are required.
Can I bring food?
Yes! You can absolutely serve food. We will use hand sanitizer or wash hands before and after based on your preference. We ask that drinks and snacks be in separate containers. (Opposed to bowls or community dishes that many hands would be reaching in.) Cupcakes, cake pops, individually wrapped goldfish, juice boxes, are all great ideas. If you would like to serve pizza, that is fine but we ask that one person distributes.
What is the cancellation policy? What do you do if there is bad weather? If you needed to cancel due to illness we would need to reschedule for the next available date. Any other cancellations we would need to know two weeks in advance. The Art Spark studio will close if weather conditions make it too dangerous to drive. We close if Cincinnati Public Schools close.

When do you need payment? Is there a deposit? We will need the payment the day of the party. You can pay with check, cash, or we can send you an invoice where you have the option to pay with credit card, or PayPal. Checks should be made out to: The Art Spark. There is a $75 deposit due once the party is scheduled.
Can we bring balloons/things to decorate with? You are welcome to bring decorations for your child’s party. Please drop them off Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, before the party so we can hang them up.
Why don’t you have the birthday boy/girl open presents? The main reason we do not open presents during the party is because it is only an activity for one child. During the parties we want all the children to be engaged in fun activities as much as possible and have enough time to complete their own projects. Opening presents also takes away an unpredictable amount of time from the rest of the party.
What types of art projects will the kids do? Sparklers will create art projects all relevant to the theme that your child chooses. For example: At a Frozen party we may sculpt Olaf with model magic, make frozen wands, and snowy capes! For example: At a Garden party children may paint pots, plant a flower, and paint a garden from his/her imagination! For example: At a Superhero Party children could make masks and watches that give them special powers!
Which teachers will be at the party? Miss Jacquelyn, Miss Emily, or Miss Hannah and one assistant will be at each party!
Can parents stay at the party? We prefer to have drop-off parties because some parents tend to try to over-help the kids with their project and we really would like the kids to be able to work independently and create something entirely their own. It’s totally fine if a parent would like to stay, but when there’s a lot it can be chaotic. It is also a small space to try to squeeze all the parents into. If you are the parents of the birthday boy/girl, we would love for you to stay and take photos and experience your child’s party! If grandparents or other family of the birthday boy/girl would like to stay they are welcome as well.
