Classes for Elementary and Middle School Students
Spring 2023 After-School Art Classes
We're so excited to have your child join us for this colorful collection of Spring classes in the new Sand Point studio! All of the classes below are geared to ages 5 through 12. Visit our Art for All Ages page to see more classes for kiddos! Register here!
Note about Class Times: We aim to provide classes at varied times each day in hopes to accomodate everyone. If you don't find a class time that works for your child, please email email@example.com to tell us what is ideal for you. We may be able to adjust class times during the season. Also, all classes have a 15 minute "start-time window" to allow kids to settle, and give families plenty of time to get here. If a class is scheduled to start at 3pm, the main project instructions should begin about 3:15pm. Thank you for your feedback anytime!
