drop-in art studio

Children’s Art Factory is a drop-in art studio
specifically for toddlers to ten-year-olds.

 

Because the world needs more artists.

As a studio, we focus on the process of art, not the product. All activities are open-ended and child-led. Learn more about our philosophy.

Our flat rate fee of $12 per visit allows children to explore and create as long as they like during their visit.

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!

come create with us!

Children’s Art Factory is located at 297 Woolwich Street (at the corner of London Road and Woolwich Street) in Guelph, Ontario.

Our neighbours are the yummy bakery With the Grain. You can’t miss us: just look for crayon drawings on the windows!

There is no time limit for your visit. You and your kiddos may stay and create as long as you like. Fee does not include same-day re-entry.
Due to our studio’s small size, we often reach capacity quickly (especially during Holidays). Visits are on a first come, first serve basis (no reservations) so it is best to come early to avoid disappointment. You are always welcome to call before your visit to check on capacity. During our busiest times ( Holidays; PA DAYS; March Break) we offer one free adult per paid child, so that more children can enjoy the studio.

Frequent Visitor Cards

If you plan to visit Children’s Art Factory often (and we hope you do!), our frequent visitor cards allow you to pay in advance for multiple visits and save a little cash. Cards can be kept at the studio and never expire, plus you can use them for multiple children.

  • 5 visits for $40
  • 10 visits for $70
  • 20 visits for $120
  • HST incl
