Afternoon Artists and Makers Program
Join us for our CREATE! Afternoon Artists and Makers Program for Kids!* Students will engage in and learn about the visual arts world as well as what it means to be a maker. As we work through the creative process, students explore and learn skills essential to life - critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and curiosity that is translated into art and other creative works. We will also delve in to all things STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). We strive to always think outside the box and color outside the lines at the studio. By keeping the program small, students are allow to explore at their own will and utilize almost any materials available at the studio on any given day. Students are encouraged to think, plan, discuss, learn, teach, listen and create with others.
Due the the nature of this program, we are only currently accepting children 1st grade through 6th grade.
*Program changes, updates and registration for the 2017-2018 school year will open mid February
