drop in make & take
unstructured exploration of different art materials

This is a chance to come and experiment with a variety of art media! We will provide an array of supplies for each participant to explore. Each session may be a little different, but examples of what will be available are paints, pencils, spirographs, charcoal, and markers. Some sessions may include things such as air dry clay and weaving looms.


Our Make and Take Studio is the only studio option available for walk-ins. Just drop in, have some fun, and leave with something you create! However, feel free to register ahead of time to reserve your spot. This class is for all ages, but children 10 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.


Session A: December 3; 9:30-10:30 AM

Session B: December 10; 9:30-10:30 AM

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