Fun with Art! 

  • Masks From Around the World: Be inspired masks from around the world! Use textured materials, adornments and colorful elements to create your very own mask.

Tell me a Story! 

  • Sweet Tales: Sugar Hill is not only our home, but also an important part of the Harlem Renaissance. Learn more about its residents and hidden jewels.

  • Virtuous Journeys: Birthday goers will hear amazing stories filled with virtues like Courage, Grace, Humility and Love. Be sure to sing along, dance and even play musical instruments!

Mix n’ Match: Wanna do both? Ok! We offer special combo packages for party goers to
create art and enjoy the wonderful journey of a story.
