“What a great idea! A unique, fun, & cool experience for all ages & seriousness levels…You have a wonderful service that no one can rival.” – Alex A., Google

What is it?

Messy Monkey Art’s PARTY IN A BOX is a unique play & painting experience for all ages, which includes:

  • Our signature “Pictionary Olympics”, combining classical “Pictionary”-like drawing games with 1980’s-recess activities, including jump-roping, bouncy-balling, leap-frogging, & hula-hooping.
  • Once transformed into our white, paper suits, we begin to paint our “whole selves” (& our neighbors!) to the tune of the “Hokey Pokey”.
  • Groove alongside the tunes of Frank Zincavage (Romeo Void) who produced the custom cd for our “Musical Canvases”, where we provide unconventional tools to paint with on canvases to 8 contagious little ditties .
  • End with the Paint-Off.  Don’t use your hands!  Get your neighbor/co-worker/best friend or enemy painted with the paintbrush on your hard hat!
  • Title & Price your paintings, & take them home to remember every day!IMG_1664
