Art Parties in Houston – The Art Cellar of Houston

Can you give a brief description of your business and what you offer customers? 
The Art Cellar of Houston is a private painting party venue hosting a wide variety of art parties for corporate events, team building, birthday parties for children and adults, art markets, and other special events. Our studio works with each host to create a unique art party for every host’s needs. The price for each event includes all art supplies, excellent art instruction, aprons, cups, plates, utensils, napkins, bottled water, and ice. Hosts are responsible for bringing in their own food, and drinks outside of water.

Can the paint parties be at someone’s home or only at your art studio? 
The Art Cellar of Houston has a studio at 1809 Eldridge Parkway, Suite 210. If you are unable to come to us, we are mobile and will come to you.  Our mobile art parties have been set up in neighborhood parks, backyards, living areas, conference rooms, and company lunchrooms. Our team will go into the designated space to provide you with a layout of the class prior to the event date.  We charge an additional $10 per person as the travel fee. Our favorite mobile party was on a Galveston beach at sunset celebrating the life of a lost loved one.  
Can you tell us about the various art activities and projects children can engage in during the parties?
For children, we offer the following art parties:
– NEW CLASS: Paint on Canvas Shoes (Added this fall)
Click on the links to learn more about each party as there is a different layout to entertain children from start to finish. Breaks are offered every 30 minutes for snacks and drinks the host will bring in.
What age group of children do you primarily cater to?
Our art parties, after-school art classes, and Home School art classes are for children ages 5 to 12 years.
What kind of themes or customizable options do you offer for the paint parties?
We love to do themed parties.  While we can not list all of our paintings on, we do have many themes including Moana, Pokemon, Minecraft, Sonic, Little Mermaid, Unicorns, Dragons, and more. Please give us a call to discuss your theme. We are happy to send examples of what we have or create a themed painting (additional charge) to fit your art party.

What sets your paint parties apart from other similar offerings in the area?
The Art Cellar of Houston is a family-owned and operated small business in the heart of the Energy Corridor District (Houston). We offer events in our studio, mobile, or virtually. Our staff works to provide top-notch customer service to each and every person who comes into our studio. While most paint party companies focus on paint on canvas as the primary paint party option; we strive to provide a variety of art and craft projects including paint on silk, paint on wood, paint on glass, watercolors, Acrylic Pour, Alcohol Inks, Paper Mache, Sculpting, and Origami. Our staff is researching and sampling new projects every week to set the art party trend in our city.
How far in advance should parents or guardians book a paint party for their child’s birthday?
We recommend booking paint parties 30 to 45 days in advance. During the months of October, November, and December, we recommend booking two months in advance.
Can people bring food, drinks, birthday cake, etc to enjoy at the paint party at your art studio?
Yes. The host can bring any drinks (Note: we provide water), and whatever food they would like to enjoy. We do not have any restrictions.
We are presently working on a small business referral page to link party hosts to amazing local photographers, bakers (cakes, cupcakes, and cookies), catering companies (food to bring in), and other add-ons (invitations and thank you cards in support of party theme) for their party needs.
In addition to the paint parties, what other classes or services does your business offer?
Our studio loves a good art market. From time to time we will host art markets around the city sharing the super talented artists and makers we have met through the years. Pre-Covid we hosted a bi-annual art festival in the Energy Corridor area. Our staff is gearing up to bring this event back in 2024.
Additionally, we have hosted bridal showers, engagement parties, proposals, gender reveals, baby showers, and wedding receptions.  Our space is available to rent alone, outside of the typical art party. It is a gorgeous setting for any occasion, with views of a gorgeous sunset every night.
Our favorite addition to the studio is our painting kits with DIY Videos providing step-by-step instructions for nearly every medium we teach. These painting kits can be found in our Shop, through the following link: 
We also offer prints and cards for any occasion (Thank you cards, Holidays, and Invitations):    
What is the best way for someone to contact you if they have any questions or are interested in booking a paint party?
