Creative Kids is a great way to bring your young children to The Workshop. It's even easier than Open Studio because there are art stations already set up to work at. Usually there are 5 stations, each with a different project or materials (painting, watercolor, playdough, chalkboard, sensory bin, stickers, etc.) At 10:30ish you are welcome to join us for a book or continue with the stations if you prefer. Creative Kids is recommended for ages 2-5 years old. Cost: $4 for the first child, $2 for each additional.

Summer Variety Classes

Summer Variety Classes work off of the $60 six class pass or can be attended individually for $12 per class. The six class pass can be used by any family members and can be used on different types of qualifying classes such as our after school Exploring Creativity classes.

Summer Variety Classes are for all ages. Come by yourself or with family or friends. Children must be at least 5 years old to attend without an adult.  Adults are welcome to attend as well. 

Like the Exploring Creativity classes we offer during the school year, these are exposure classes. There is some explanation of technique, but the greater focus is on exposing people to different mediums, giving a chance to try out different art materials. The difference between one of these classes and Open Studio is that the class has an instructor to help guide and answer questions, and the class offers some more specialized materials that might not always be available during Open Studio. We would definitely be willing to schedule any of these as a longer specialty class upon request.
