The Chesterton Art Center is now hosting children's birthday parties for kids ages 3 and older. Each party will include a two-hour time slot on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Guests will receive a stretched canvas painting (12-inch by 12-inch size), with a theme determined by the birthday boy/girl and a small craft to take home.
The center will provide a picture frame photo booth for fun pictures of the children at the event, and a special gift for the birthday child. Jennifer Martin, the children's art instructor, will organize and lead the party. While the center will provide decorations for the classroom, the parents are responsible for food, drink, plates, etc., as well as balloons, if desired.
The cost is $10 per child, with a minimum of 10 children. The maximum party size is 20 children. Goodie bags may be added on for an additional $3 per child. Once the party date has been approved, a $50 deposit will be required to hold the date. The deposit will go toward the total balance due on the day of the party. For more information, call (219) 926-4711. The Chesterton Art Center is at 115 S. 4th St.
