After School Programs
for schools and organizations
Our after-school art classes are the perfect way for children to end their school day! Engaging in hands-on art activities gives children critical sensory input and allows them to process their day while having fun. We offer several themed classes that range from small projects that can be completed in one session to larger projects, like our DIY dollhouses, that inspire weeks of creativity.
If your school or organization is interested in learning more about our after-school classes and how we can help your students explore, create, and experiment with art, click below to contact us.
Design and create your own costumes for the ultimate dress up experience! From monsters, to royalty, to superheroes, students will use their imaginations to create one-of-a-kind costumes using both new and recycled materials. Each class will focus on a specific type of costume or accessory for students to customize.
Jewelry, glasses, bags and more! This class focuses on art projects that students can wear! Students will create and paint their own beads for jewelry-making, learn dyeing techniques to create custom socks, and make backpack candy for their backpacks.
SLIME + SENSORY PLAY
Come get messy with us! Students will engage in open-ended play at sensory stations filled with materials such as kinetic sand, water beads, bubbles, foam and more! Each class will feature a making session where students will create a sensory item such as glitter slime, scented playdough, and “magic” potions.

Become a slimer! In this hands on class, students will learn everything they need to know to make their own slime. We will cover the basics of making slime and work our way to creating advanced recipes that include special ingredients like foam beads and thermochromic (color-changing!) pigment. Students will also create their own recipe book complete with pictures to document their slime making experience.

FASHION DESIGN -
Students will take on a superstar “client” and design their stage outfits for a concert tour or music festival. Starting with an inspiration board, students will collect images, fabrics, and trims that will inspire their client’s costumes.
