BIRTHDAY PARTIES FOR CHILDREN 5 YEARS +
Levy LaRocque Studio is a personal, relaxing and fun environment to host your child’s birthday party. Kids experience life as an artist at “One Cottage Street” a well known 19th century mill building and artist space. Teacher and mother, Marcia LaRocque, shares her 25+ years ceramic experience with kids of all ages, instructing and supporting group projects according to age and skill level. Each child will plan a design first on paper, then begin building a mosaic object using Marcia's hand painted broken up tile and a simple form. As the final touch, each child mixes & applies grout to the finished product. Much satisfaction amongst participants is witnessed as masterpieces unfold. And it's all for keeps. No goody bags required!
WHY LEVY LAROCQUE?
Kids thoroughly enjoy this kind of hands on creative activity. They become still and focused during the process which requires a certain amount of concentration. At pick up time, one parent thought they had the wrong location because the studio was so quiet.
It is possible that fun and joy in learning be achieved peacefully!
Levy LaRocque Studio offers unique objects on which to build a mosaic.
Projects are selected based on the best fit for the birthday child’s age & his/her ability.
The mosaic projects rotate and may include: a hotplate, picture frame, mirror or flower pot. Additional options are available at extra cost. Please inquire.
