Will my child be taught or have a lesson during Open Studio?
Open Studio is less about a lesson and more about exploration. Open studio is an opportunity for your child to let their imagination run wild. If your child is unsure what to make with their new found freedom, our friendly staff will ask questions to see what sparks your child’s interest. Your child will develop their own ideas, create a plan, solve problems, & work through the creative process independently! Maybe your child wants to sculpt their pet, make a purse, or just paint the flowers growing in the yard!
