parties & special events

For birthday parties in July and August, we are taking reservations by appointment only. The studio is available most Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and 1pm. Please contact us here with your date preference.

Note: Party reservations must be made at least one week in advance. Thanks!


Give your child a gift to remember, with a birthday party at Roaring Mouse!

Our party specialist, Cheryl Carder, will design an art project especially selected to match your child’s favorite interest (favorite toys, books, or games) or party theme. Our parties are best suited for children ages 2-10. Guests will also have access to our play room full of imaginative toys. See the bios for our party teachers, Cheryl Carder, Madeline McCarthy, Emily Ritchie, and Marisa Dillard here!


How long are your parties and what do the kids do?

Our parties are two hours long and include an art project designed to your child’s interest (favorite toys, books, or games) or party theme. Guests also have use of our playroom.

How much do your parties cost? How do I pay?

Cost of an art party is $175.00. This includes your child and seven guests. Additional guests may be added for $12.50 per guest for a maximum total of 12 children participating in the project. Parents of guests are welcomed to stay during the party especially if their child will be more comfortable that way.

A $50 non-refundable deposit is required and may be paid through our online reservation system. The remaining total can be made on the day of the party with cash or checks. GUESTS SHOULD DRESS TO MESS!

What is the space like? Will I have room to serve cake?

Our studio is a large room divided into two sections, the art room and playroom. The art room includes not only space for the party project but a place to celebrate your child’s birthday. Families will have access to two long tables and chairs, two side cabinets (for food), and we even have a special place for gifts. Our toys and musical instruments are available during the party, allowing the children to explore the art project at their comfort level and speed.

How is the party structured?

Our parties begin with a warm up time where guests are encouraged to explore the instruments/toys in playroom (15 minutes). Guests are then welcomed by teacher and encouraged to come to the project table. Projects often include 2-3 different types of art materials (painting, drawing, collaging, or sculpting). Children work on first part of project. When children are finished they may once again choose to play or if project can be extended (ex. Given paper for painting) they can choose to continue working. When all guests are finished the next part of project is set up and children are called back. Party continues in this pattern until all project parts are all completed. Some assembling is usually necessary by teacher for completion.

Do you host other types of parties?

Yes!!! We are happy to tailor our party venue to meet your needs! Just ask and be creative!

Anything else I need to know?

  • The Birthday Child’s family may arrive 15 minutes before the start of their party time to set up whatever food items, decorations, or other party supplies they would like to use. We have a microwave available for your convenience but plan to bring a cooler if necessary.
  • Please feel free to bring an mp3 player/phone to play during the party. You supply food, drinks, paper plates, cups, utensils and a tablecloth. A standard plastic table cloth almost fits across the two tables (about 10 inches is exposed).
  • We are a nut free facility so please keep that in mind if planning a menu.
  • Typical timing for cake and presents is usually around 15 minutes for each. We tend to reserve the last 30-45 minutes for this.
  • Families can request variations (examples: presents, want to add snack/meal time) that are easily accommodated in most circumstances.
  • Clients have a 15 minute period after party to do a basic clean up (clear food from tables and cabinets, gather decorations, presents, and personal items).
  • We are located very close to the Roosevelt neighborhood (Whole Foods, Starbucks, Bartell, various other shopping opportunities) and there is a Diva Espresso on 80th and 15th. Parking spaces are available in front of our studio as well as street parking.

Thank you for your interest in Roaring Mouse Birthday parties! We look forward to celebrating with you!
