The first thing you need to do is let all your friends know about your spectacular birthday party plans.

The right invitation will build excitement and anticipation for your upcoming artist birthday party. A fabulously creative idea for artist party invitations is to make paint splatter invites to your very own art gallery..

Another idea is to wrap your invitation around a box of crayons or tray of watercolor paints. Secure it with a sticker or a piece of ribbon.


Let your friends know they are about to enter an area of extreme creativity and birthday fun as they make their way to the door of your artist birthday party.

Set the stage for your artist birthday party by starting your decorations right out your front door.

Place an art easel announcing the 1st Annual Birthday Art Show near your door. Decorate the sign with any kind of doodles and drawings.

You can also use chalk and decorate your driveway or walk way with pictures of crayons and swirls of color.

Your guests will get a kick out of them and this pre-show continues to set the artistic mood for the party.

Decorating the party area is just as easy. You don't need much. Just a splash here and there to keep the artist birthday party theme going. Hang copies of Famous Works of Art, your own art work, colorful streamers and balloons. Remember the focus is on color and creativity.

Activities & Games

Now on to the fun! Entertaining your artist friends is as easy as planning some super fun artist party activities. Color, creativity and imagination are the inspiration for this artist birthday party. So the sky is the limit as to potential activities and games.

Here are some of my favorite artistic ideas.

They work really well together and are super fun.

Birthday Cake

A cake for an artist birthday party can be really fun to make.

An artist birthday cake can be absolutely anything. The cake itself is like a sculpture so if the birthday child loves a certain cartoon character then put a picture of that character on the cake and pipe on brown or gold frosting around the edge to look like a frame.

Other ideas are to make a Color Palette Cake or have each guest decorate their own mini cake as only true artists can.

Party Food

Food at an artist birthday party should be fun and colorful. Click here for some creative party food ideas. And serve a variety of organic juices mixed in with seltzer water. You'll be surprised at how tasty this soda replacement is.

Variations to the Theme

Visit a Museum - Check out a local art museum for a kids program. Have your artist party there in a party room.

Pottery Painting - Go to one of the ever growing number of "paint and pottery" shops around. Here you'll be able to host your party and each child will be able to paint and take home a piece of pottery. Some actually kiln dry it. For these you'll have to leave the painted pottery pieces for a few days then pick them up later and deliver them to your guests. Include your thank you note with each delivery.

What To Do with Siblings

Siblings are great most of the time. You have someone to play with, a lifelong friend and someone to blame for the wet towel on the bathroom floor. But they can be hit or miss at an artist party. My advice is to get them involved. Try these What To Do with Your Sibling ideas.
