Birthday Parties
Did you know that Studio Arts Boulder offers kids' birthday parties!? These events are a really fun way for your child to celebrate their day of birth, make some art, play with clay, and hang out with friends and family. You are welcome to bring food and decorate our kids' room, and all pieces will be glazed and fired and ready for pickup in about 3 weeks. For more information, please visit our page on birthday parties: Parties at the Lab, or call 720-379-6033.
