Birthday Party FAQs

May I bring food to the party?

We ask that you do not bring additional food to the party. Candy and gum are not allowed in the galleries. You may hand out a goodie bag at the end of the party for your guests to take home with them if you choose.

Am I allowed to decorate the room that the party is being held in?

RAM will set up a cake table and a table to receive gifts. We will also set up the room with streamers. Glitter, confetti, silly string, balloons, and bubbles are not permitted.

What kind of art-making activity will my child and guests participate in and how long will it take?

The art-making activity will last about an hour. That gives you time to open presents and to eat cake. Your child and their guests will learn about a specific art medium and process to create a one-of-a-kind work of art to take home with them.

My child really loves (insert favorite thing here). Can the art activity include that?

Yes. We will speak with you regarding what your child likes and tailor the art-making activity to include some of their interests. For example, a lesson on illustration might include their favorite story characters or a printmaking lesson could include their favorite animals.
