Birthday Art Party!

Have your child’s private birthday party at the SHAC. You’ll rent the space for 2 hours, with free setup and cleanup time on either end. Enjoy our open, well-ventilated space and celebrate just your way. Your kids will do a guided painting with Birthday Party Artist, Bob Wesley. Bob allows you to choose the painting theme you’d like to do. Adults can paint too! Feel free to bring cake, food, presents, whatever you’re comfortable with. Your kids will love the open fun of the SHAC and sharing their time in birthday celebration and creative expression. $225 for a party of 10. $10 for each additional child. Non-painters can attend freely. Our current limit is 18 people. As pandemic guidelines lessen and indoor gathering sizes increase, that will jump to a full room of your favorite people, and Bob (who will quickly become one of your favorite people).

Rent the SHAC

The Suzanne Haskew Arts Center is a large, well-ventilated garage space. It was formerly a tool and die shop. During the COVID-19 pandemic, ventilation is an important factor when considering indoor safety.

The SHAC offers private rentals in alignment with all MDHHS and CDC quarantines and safety protocols. We work with private groups and organizations as we offer a highly ventilated, socially-distant space for your essential meetings and private parties. We ask that groups be limited in size, current occupancy is 18 based on MDHHS Epidemic Orders. We follow all safety protocols include face masks, social distancing and frequent hand-washing and sanitization. As things open up more we will update you!

If you are interested in renting the SHAC for private events, please call the SHAC at (248) 797-3060, email us, for more information and to arrange your date and time. See you at the SHAC!
