Let your little artists create at a pizza party at this studio, which is Montessori and TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) inspired. Painting, drawing, and sewing classes are available for all ages, as well as an open studio for both kids and adults.

Ceramics in the City

Paint your own pottery, fuse glass, or paint on canvas at this Park Hill studio. Drop in or sign your kids up for a fun class like “Story Time!” in which a popular children’s book is read and then kids paint a ceramic piece to go along with the story’s message.
