Friday, 3rd – 5th Grade: The Creative Laboratory

This is the heart of Creative Labs: a space for young artists to unleash their creativity in a well-outfitted art studio! Sign up for the Creative Laboratory if you want to work on a project of your own design, explore a medium like drawing, painting, sculpture, or printmaking, and/or get personalized attention and guidance from incredible teaching artists. Adults get Open Studios; kids get the Creative Laboratory!

Special Notes:

In an effort to make Creative Labs financially accessible, the program is built on a sliding scale. During the registration process, you will be asked to select from one of five pricing tiers. If you are energized to do so, you may also sponsor others to attend by contributing an additional amount. At a minimum, families will be asked to pay a $60 registration fee.

We ask that students and visitors wear an N-95 or KN-95 mask (or double up on cloth masks) to protect yourselves and our community.
