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 10 people | Nonmembers: $250 for 10 people

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.
