Extended time can be requested in advance for $50 per half hour.
FOOD FOR PARTIES/CLASSES
Only the kids paint with the instructor during kids classes and parties. Adults are welcome to stay and enjoy the experience but we highly recommend that adults refrain from correcting the children or from being louder than the children. Our instructors will guide and assist the children as needed. The idea is for children to have fun while painting. Each child works on a painting based on their own creativity, imagination and skill level. When parents assist the children, they are sending cues to children that their painting is not good enough which lowers their self esteem. Please let the children decide on the colors themselves. Please refrain from correcting the children and be very proud of their paintings! You are welcome to assist handicapped children. Please let us know ahead if you are bringing a special needs child to the studio. Parents are welcome to assist their child with wearing aprons and getting them seated and assisting with washing their hands. If you see that your child is having a bad day or the child is having difficulty focusing and when your child's behavior is affecting the rest of the class, feel free to gently divert the child or take him or her out of the studio to talk to them.
Kids can take their paintings home after they are completed unlike ceramics where their pieces need to be fired. Paintings are ready to be hung on walls----- instant gratification for kids!
MOMMY N ME

Both moms n kids paint in these classes on the same canvas. Size of canvas changes with the type of painting. You can request a private party for moms n kids if you have more than 8 in your group.
