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.

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 37 Yarmouth St. in Downtown Guelph, Ontario.
