Birthday Party Information For Parents

View Page

All children attending a birthday party or on the grounds of ArtBarnATX are required to have a signed party participation waiver form to attend and participate. It is the host’s responsibility to ensure all guests have filled out a waiver before the party.  You and your guest can DIGITALLY SIGN THE WAIVER ONLINE OR PRINT & SIGN THE WAIVER. 

 A new waiver is needed for each event and party – it is non-transferable

Please refer to our Participation Waiver FAQ page for any questions you may have about Waivers.

What Can We Expect To Experience At An Art Birthday Party?

Who doesn’t love a unique Art birthday party?  For our splatter birthday parties: Party attendees will participate in a paint throwing event to create a one of a kind artwork for the child.  Splatter time will last about 45 minutes, after clean up you will be able to serve your guests refreshments.  All participating kiddos will take home a unique piece of art work as part of this experience (to be picked up in 3-5 days afterwards, trust me you will not want the wet canvases in your car).  After splatter time, the group will commence with the host  supervising their food and gifting activities of the party.

What Is Your Rescheduling and Cancellation (Refund) Policy For Birthday Parties?

Art Barn ATX firmly require a minimum of 30 days notice of cancellation before your birthday party date to reschedule it. All rescheduled parties must be rescheduled within 30 days of the booked birthday party date or your party will be cancelled and no refund given.

There are no refunds for all birthday parties that have been booked and paid (Full payment is due at the time of booking).

If for ANY reason you need to reschedule your birthday party to another date and provide 30 days of notice  – there will be a $50 rescheduling fee. Rescheduled dates must be within 30 days of the booked date for your party. If a 1 PM – 3 PM time slot isn’t available- then the guests must schedule an available 4 PM – 6 PM time slot.


Full payment is due at the time of every booking.

When Are The Arrival and Departure Times for Art Parties?

Party organizers can arrive fifteen (15) minutes prior to start time to setup your party.  A typical party will run for two (2) hours.  Additional time can be added (schedule permitting) for an additional cost.  Our staff has a limited amount of time to reset the ArtBarnATX space for other activities after a party concludes.  We encourage you to have your party wrapped up on the hour.   The ArtBanATX staff are more than happy to help in any way to ensure an enjoyable experience!

What Should You Wear For Splatter Paint Parties?

Dress for mess! Please remind participating guests to wear clothes they are comfortable getting paint on. A change of clothing is highly encouraged! The paint is non toxic washable paint, but the paint doesn’t always come out of clothes.  It is encouraged that long hair be pulled back.  Children will take shoes off while participating, they can wear flip flops if they choose to do so in the splatter room only, but will need a change of shoes in the main studio.  We also have a private bathroom if participants want to bring a change of clothing.   Clean up of feet and hands will be highly encouraged, but I have found participants, LOVE to leave with paint still on their arms, legs and, yes on purpose.

What Are The Additional Costs To Add More Friends for Art Parties?

Additional friends can be added to a booked party at the cost of art activity chosen per child (see your art activity information).  There is no charge for children, parents, or relatives attending whom don’t participate.
