kentuck's kids studio

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

 Saturdays Kentuck's Kids Studio Times!


Saturday 9:30 am-10:30 am

Saturday 11 am-12 pm

We are expanding our programming to include a variety of one hour classes for children ages 2-8, in a variety of categories. These classes will be in accord with the visual arts standards for the state of Alabama.

Every Saturday will feature a different art themed activity with 2 opportunities to register. Each class is one hour but sign up for both and enjoy 2 hours of creative play.

This is an opportunity for younger children ages 2-8 to play, explore and learn what the arts have to offer.

Children need to be accompanied by an adult during our Saturday sessions.

This class will be located in the newly available 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.
