The day was all about making colorful art with our friends! We had three different art stations running the entire party, in groups of five. As the artwork began growing, our art helpers moved the finished pieces into the closed "art gallery." At the end of the party, the artists were invited into the gallery to view their work, and to celebrate with a lovely rainbow rose cake!
What People Ate
We offered our artists snacks between art classes. They had fruit, veggies, finger sandwiches, and chips.
What People Drank
The creative juices for the thirsty artists were Gatorade and water.
The sweets table had paint palette sugar cookies, rice krispy paint brushes, m&m's in the PARTY dishes, and chocolate/m&m pretzel treats.
Each child in the 7 year old and up classes created two canvas paintings to take home, the 6 and under classes created several paper paintings to take home. All guests made their own tie-dye shirt. Those creations were their favors. Additionally, they got gumball tubes in the order of the rainbow. :)
Activities / Games
The art teacher from school taught a painting lesson and a tie-dye lesson to the artists. Younger art helpers ran tape painting, watercolor still life and pointillism, spin art, balloon painting, finger painting, rainbow painting, and splatter painting tables.

This party package was just what I was looking for, rainbow art! It added the vibrant color I was looking for, and the paintbrush banner was one of my favorite details of the entire party's decor.http://etsy.com/shop/SunshineandPop
This rose-covered cake was perfect for my Anna Rose! I was pleased with how the baker blended the rainbow colors so nicely into one another. The cake was gorgeous, and made the artists gasp when they saw it. :)http://facebook.com/thebakerycakes
