Sundays Noon - 4pm

Host your next party at Yucandu Art Studio! If you’re looking for an interactive and creative time for you and your guests, the place to be is Yucandu. Pick your party level (mosaics, collage or paint), then the project your guests will make and leave the rest to us! No need for decorations, party favors or clean-up. All you have to do is enjoy the fun!

Three party levels to choose from.  Each level includes:

  • Invitation creation. Make Artist Trading Cards, mounted on your invites!
  • Two hours in an inspirational classroom.
  • Artist-quality materials. Choose project ahead of time; guests make it as they like!
  • Qualified and enthusiastic instructors
  • Complete set-up and clean-up

Price levels are based on projects only. Project availability based on current inventory.
Adults--We encourage you to add an hour to your party for only $60.  This allows for your guests to “trickle in” for the first half hour, to have more social time with food and drinks, and have plenty of time to finish their projects.  BYOB welcome.

Level 1 Party

$208 for first 8 people. $26 per additional guest.
Samples are available for inspiration, however your project can be as original as you like!

Gelli Mono-Prints
Create several Gelli mono-prints, each with multiple layers of paints and patterns. Matte your favorite with a professional 11×14″ mat. And then you get to mono-print on a notebook, too!

Painted Canvas
Paint an artist-quality 11 x 14″canvas.  Each guest paints whatever they like, or if you prefer, the same image.   Optional holographic 3D glasses included, which makes it really fun & unique.  Great for adults and kids.  BYOB or BYOWB (water bottle:)

Paint an Elephant, Owl or Butterfly

Kids LOVE to paint. These wooden elephants, owls & butterflies have two sides, could be awake and asleep, day or night, face or feathers—it’s all up to the artist! They measure about 6.5″ wide, 1″ deep, and stand up on their own.

Painted Paper Maché Animal
An absolute favorite! Pick your perfect pet and paint away. Pink, polka-dotted, plaid…the possibilities are endless.  Seal with plain or glitter sealer for a finished look. Many of our animals are designed by and exclusive to Yucandu.

Painted Paper Maché Box
Something fun and practical at the same time.  Start with the inside with a surprise color and then design the outside with color, patterns, and symbols.  What will your box be for?  Buttons, hair clips, tickets, notes, blessings…it’s limitless!

Painted Wooden Frame
Paint the background first, then add layers of dots, patterns, or whatever you like. No two frames will go out looking the same! We are happy to take a group photo and print a copy for each of your frames!

Samples are available for inspiration, however your project can be as original as you like!
