Or we can package everything up for you to take home and celebrate there.

PARTY POLICIES

  • Party pieces will be wrapped, labeled, and bagged for the party host to pick up in about one week. Kindly inform your guests of this practice.
  • Children in parties may paint no more than two items totaling the maximum value allowed for the party package selected. For items over two per child, regular studio pricing applies, even if the total of these items is less than the party package limit. Single items that cost more than the party limit will be charged the difference.
  • Children MUST remain in the party area at all times. Children under 12 must be supervised by an adult at all times.
  • Adults wishing to paint in the studio during a party may do so. Adults who are not painting may be seated in the studio, but might be asked to give up their seat for a paying customer.
  • SPAAC employees are available to monitor your party and assist your guests, but may not be in the party area the entire time.
  • Parties are scheduled for 2 hours. An additional 1/2 hour may be purchased at the time of the party for $25. If the room is not vacated within 10 minutes of the scheduled end time of the party, the $25 fee WILL BE ADDED TO YOUR BILL.
  • For children’s parties, a SPAAC employee will ring up the party when the party area is vacated. Once the area is clear, please proceed to the check out counter. For adult parties, a SPAAC employee will begin the “Check-out” procedure 15 minutes before the end of the party to ensure enough time to ring everyone up.

SCOUTS

Girl Scouts & Brownies,
Cub Scouts & Webelos:
One 1-1/2 hour session. Groups of 8-24 (siblings age 7+ are welcome). Each scout will receive 3 lbs. of clay to create one project on the wheel plus one hand-built project. Cost is $25 per person. (Clay, bisque firing, glaze, and glaze firing included). Girl Scouts will earn the Ceramics and Clay Badge. Brownies, Cub Scouts, and Webelos can complete requirements for any art-related badges or pins, or just come in to have some fun.

Boy Scouts:
BSA Pottery Merit Badge (Instructor is a registered merit badge counselor with the Carroll District for the Pottery Merit Badge.) To complete the pottery merit badge will take a minimum of 3 visits of about 1 hour each. Included in this is a basic history of pottery, learning and trying several hand-building techniques for wet clay, making a pottery piece on the wheel, and also learning how to properly load a kiln. Each piece made by the scout will be bisque fired, then painted by the scout and fired again to create a finished glazed piece. This is a fairly easy badge that is also very fun and interesting for a scout to do. Cost is $45, including instruction, materials and use of all studio tools and equipment.
