Create Something Uniquely You!

Explore materials, learn about process, and create some art. Bring your creativity and curiosity to The Studio where every visit is a chance to create something uniquely you. The Studio is a space where your imagination can take you anywhere. The Studio offers open-ended, multi-disciplinary arts and maker activities on a rotating basis.

The opportunity to create art comes with many benefits. Art promotes:
  • Creativity
  • Confidence
  • Problem-solving
  • Patience and persistence
  • The ability to give and receive feedback
December 1 – December 15

Bookmaking

Come tell your story! Image, create, and share a book designed by you. Making your own book is a fantastic way for children of all ages to communicate their ideas.

Children and their families always find these wonderful ways to get started. Sometimes they create elaborate covers and bindings, but sometimes they simply fold a few pieces of paper in half and get started writing and drawing!
