NO SHOES PLEASE in the studio! This is to prevent the moon sand from leaving the studio on the bottom of shoes. We very much appreciate your accommodation! Please remember to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty/painted/wet or moon dusty. No shirts and bare feet are welcome!
As a studio we focus on the process of Art not the product. All activities are open-ended and child-led. We explore many different types of Art and change themes weekly to keep things fresh and interesting. Imagination-based play and messy art activities are emphasized. The best part?….We clean-up the mess!
Check our website calendar (below) for weekly themes!

The best description of what we do here at the studio is from the book YOUNG AT ART by Susan Striker:
“If it is important to you that your child’s clothes always be neat and tidy, then [this studio] will make you uncomfortable. I’m not promising to turn your child into Michelangelo. [ This studio] is not about drawing or painting well. It is about encouraging your child to think independently and confidently. It is about helping your child explore their surroundings in an adventurous manner, but with sensitivity. It is about helping your child maintain a level of curiosity all children are born with, but most lose by the time they are ready for school”
