Art Birthday Party (deluxe)

* 3 hour step by step instruction from Chris Babcock on how to draw and paint a 14 by 20 inch acrylic picture of the birthday person’s choosing: Chris emails the birthday person several animal, still-life and figure images to choose from, or he or she can pick any image they love. If the artwork is a complex image that cannot be completed in 3 hours, Chris will do a pre-draw of the pictures, so all the kids can have time to complete the drawing and paint it in the 3 hour time frame. Through verbal explanation and visual demonstration, Chris gives constant instruction on how to draw and paint the image. The art lesson includes all professional acrylics, archival paper, aprons, set-up and clean-up.
