A note about our policies: CAF staff enforce policies in the studio to ensure safety and to sustain and maintain our unique space. When visiting our studio, we ask for your consideration by respecting our policies, which are explained upon arrival and in detail, below:

  • Children's Art Factory is a drop-in art studio - reservations or pre-booking are not available. Drop-in visits are first come, first served. Entry is not guaranteed. A bit of pre-planning can help prevent disappointment. Please read our tips to help you plan your drop in visit. If we reach capacity and you are turned away, we do keep and maintain a waitlist at the front entrance and will contact you if space opens up within each session. FYI: Visitors are welcome to stay and play for as long as they wish within each session, so being on the waitlist is not a guarantee for entry.

  • Socks are required in our studio by all children and adults visiting. Please Note: Our floors can be slippery due to the moonsand used in our sock monkey kitchen. Grip socks are highly recommended. Adult and child grip socks are available for purchase at the front desk.

  • Food may not be consumed anywhere in the main studio or the front entrance. There is no snack area. Drinks are welcome but must be kept and consumed in our front entrance area only. Please come prepared by eating before you arrive or after your play! A where-to-eat guide is free for the taking in the front entrance.

  • Materials and tools from one station may not travel to another station. Our studio is not a free for all. Tools and materials from one station may damage tools and materials in another station. CAF staff maintain watch during each session and will remind visitors, if this rule is not being followed.
