IS183 Art Parties

IS183 Art School creates unique themed art experiences for birthdays, showers, team building, and corporate events!

We bring our experienced artists and instructors to team-building events, creative activities, and celebrations for all ages and occasions, making your special event personalized and memorable.

Events include a two-hour space rental, and are held in our studios at Citizens' Hall in Stockbridge (which includes our ceramics studio and outdoor space). A special request can be made for an off-site event at an office or other location (prices and guidelines may vary).

We ask that you book your party at least one month in advance so that we can best design and staff this unique experience. Payment is due at booking. Cancellations will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and not within 10 days of the party.



• 12 guests: $225
• 13–16 guests: $250
• 17–24 guests: $285

Please note that additional expenses may apply based on the specific theme and materials required for more customized offerings.


Parties for Young Artists

Our staff will work in consultation with the birthday child’s family to provide a unique buffet of art projects based around a theme or media of your choice. A faculty artist and assistant will lead a 1.5-hour art activity.


Creative Gatherings for Adults

Whether it is for a special birthday, team-building event, bachelorette party, baby shower, or something else great, IS183 can provide an ideal creative retreat or party experience for adult groups, enabling genuinely out-of-the-box bonding and creative thinking.

Our birthday party guests from age 1 to 71 had a great time creating Trolls-themed hair, scrapbooks, and slime at my child’s 8th birthday party. It was the perfect space for a large group of family and friends, and a memorable party for everyone.
