kentuck's kids studio

Kentuck is now offering several kid-friendly crafting opportunities during the week!

Kentuck Art Center is hosting Kentuck Kids Studios for ages 2-8! These classes are one hour on Saturdays and are in accordance with Alabama’s education standards for visual arts. Each Saturday is a different activity, so there’s always something new for your child to learn. Each class is one hour on Saturdays (either 9:30am-10:30am or 11am-12pm), but you are welcome to sign up for both sessions and enjoy 2 hours of creative play. 

Children need to be accompanied by an adult during our Saturday sessions, but don't worry—we clean up the mess.

This class will be located in Studio 2, which is located behind Rusty the big red dog on our campus. Look for the blue double doors in the Courtyard of Wonders!


There is a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 14 per session. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.
