Your family will love the supportive, caring environment where wellness and sense of community are high priorities!

Students will spend time with peers getting creative, expressing themselves, and exploring the arts. We all have a lot of fun and love the studio like a second home!

NOW ACCEPTING REGISTRATION

schedule subject to adjustments based on registration

 

 

School Season: September 18th - June 17th

All Creative Programs meet weekly at your selected time slot with a regular group of students. This allows students the chance to form relationships, work through multi-step activities, and enjoy more creative time (with less get-to-know-you and rule/procedure learning). The connections that we form better enable students to feel confident and comfortable.

Participation for the entire school season is highly encouraged but can be broken up with Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. Late registration is accepted and prorated *if* possible, but it's best to register at the start of the season and discuss potential solutions to conflicts.
