Shannon is a Connecticut-based performer who came to Kaleidoscope in the fall of 2015, shortly after graduating with her degree at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts. Shannon is a professionally trained singer and actress and currently plays several of our cartoon characters, but when she came to Kaleidoscope picked up face painting and balloon twisting just as naturally!

Unique entertainment is our specialty–but what do you do when your kids get too old for traditional face painting and balloon twisting? In the hundreds of parties our face painters and balloon twisters have performed at, we’ve noticed after age 10 or so parents tend to forego entertainment since the kids are less interested, which can often lead to a pack of excited tweens tearing up their house with not much else to do!

Face Painting and Balloon Twisting is now available in Rhode Island!

A big thank-you is due to all of our amazing family- and corporate-clients for recommending our business to everyone they know. Although we never expected to grow big enough to service all of Southern New England, as of this September we officially will be!

Although Kaleidoscope has had our artists previously travel to Rhode Island for events over 4hrs long, we will now be doing birthday parties as well, no matter how small! We’re excited to be bringing on some amazing new Barrington-based artists for both face painting and balloon twisting.

Here is the full list of towns we now service in Rhode Island and Southern MA with face painting and balloon twisting without any travel fee!

I don’t normally do this, but I wanted to take a second to write to our clients personally not as “Kaleidoscope” but as myself. My name is Marissa–I’m the owner of Kaleidoscope, a lifelong vegetarian, and the pack leader of two rescue dogs. My first job, at the age of 15, was doing warehouse work in pretty rough conditions; my first graphic design job was at a women’s center, helping get women access to important resources through informational posters and hand-outs.

Kenny the Clown has been with Kaleidoscope since the beginning. We know there are lots of reason to have a clown at your event–and lots of reasons not to! Kenny’s outfit, act, attitude, and everything about him has been thought about and planned to create an awesome experience for all of your party guests: from one to 101 years old!

We’ve had a lot of questions about Kenny and with the National Clown Shortage going on (yes, that’s a thing), we figured we’d address some of them.
