Saturday drop-in time

Our Saturday drop-in experience follows a similar model to our SmART StART offering, but it’s geared toward kids and teens of all ages and not just our pint-sized Picassos!

We love that kids and teens can pop in on a weekend whim and experiment at our multiple creative art stations! It’s a great option for those who can’t commit to a full semester of classes or who don’t thrive in a structured class with assigned projects.

Each Saturday features four stations: painting, drawing, sculpting, and a surprise medium or craft each week. Artists are welcome to stay for however long they feel inspired to create…our studio is their studio! This is an open-house experience where our artists determine what they’ll make and how they’ll make it. In other words, this class is an independent “study” of sorts – not teacher-led – so children under 4 must be accompanied by a grown-up chaperone.
