The Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon in Canton offers birthday parties for children ages 4-14.


Nature Exploration & Art Activity

We pride ourselves on developing individualized programs for each child. Let us know their interests and we can create a terrific birthday party. For example, if you child loves frogs, we could design a birthday with a nature hike, visit to our vernal pool to interacting with the animals that live in the vernal pool, and returning to the art studio to create frog inspired art.
Members: $200 for up to 10 guests • Nonmembers: $250 for up to 10 guests

Paint Party & Nature Exploration 

Each child will go home with their own art creation on a canvas. Theme will be selected by the birthday child. For example, does your child love birds? They will go on a nature hike to see different bird nests, return to our art studio to see real bird nests up close, and then create a Charley Harper inspired painting of their favorite bird.
Members: $200 for up to 10 guests  Nonmembers: $250 for up to 10 guests

Suminagashi Party 

Have an incredible amount of fun as brilliant, vibrant colors, dance across the water. Each child makes incredible art by using this ancient technique to marble paper.
Members: $200 up to 10 guests  Nonmembers: $250 for up to 10 guests

Printmaking Party

The birthday child and party guests will have a great time designing and making beautiful pictures using pastels and linocut stamps. We will go for a nature walk to gather inspiration and then each child will create a landscape with pastels and complete their picture using our owl, butterfly and flower stamps. Everyone will go home with their own laminated masterpiece!
Members: $200 for up to 10 guests • Nonmembers: $250 for up to 10 guests

Our pottery party includes a chance for all to get instruction and to try hand building or the pottery wheel. A popular choice is making a baby bird for all to take home.
