Open Studio Fridays
A Self-Directed Creative Opportunity
For ages 3 and Up
Open Studio is a self-directed creative time for children (and parents). Each week will introduce a new set of materials and inspirations for children to create art independently. An instructor will be available to give tips on how to use materials, inspirational sources and basic guidance on how to begin and work through the creative process. Open Studio Fridays is not a class. Teachers will not be providing lessons. Teachers are available for guidance on creating your own masterpieces.

Children ages 3 & up are welcome. Children under 5 yrs must be accompanied by an adult. Parents may accompany children (of any age) during the session but are not required to stay if the child is 5 yrs or older. Each Open Studio session will provide children with materials to complete one project (ea. one canvas, one palette with paint) as well as unlimited free draw paper and colored pencils. Theses sessions are self-directed. Children may arrive and leave anytime within Open Studio hours. Children are asked to remain working on their artwork during their time at open studio. This means they are engaged in the creative process with the main project materials or with free draw materials. Morning sessions are great for preschoolers and homeschoolers. Seats are limited in Open Studio Sessions. Register early to reserve your seat or call ahead for drop in seats.
