Multiple Creative Offerings:


Our motto:
Imagine like a kid. Create like a boss. Our children’s art classes for toddlers to teens delight + inspire, whether it’s their first time through the door or 400th!


When School is Out, Art is In. During the summer months and school holidays, our studios are buzzing with busy hands, flying paint, falling glitter and the joy of artsy new discoveries!


Our festive studios are perfect for celebrations! From birthdays (ages 4-100), to graduations, milestones & more – customers bring something to stick a candle in and we handle the rest!


From holidays to new movies or trends that have all the kids buzzing – we love to plug into the creative pulse of our community with Kids Night Out + special themed workshops!
