For Children

Art Programming for Children and Their Parents

 

Our highly visual and tactile children’s programming is a highlight of our studio. Whether it is creating paintings on our colorful walls, crafting miniature forest scenes, attending our highly rated summer camps, or just exploring art for the first time, kids absolutely love these  classes. But don’t just take our word for it – explore our options below and find out why families can’t stop coming back.

Worried About a Virtual Class?

Testimonial:

“I was apprehensive about a virtual art class at first, but was pleasantly surprised how completely engaged my son was for the entire 90 minutes. My son liked the virtual class almost as much as he liked the in-studio one. I am thrilled to have this available to us during this difficult time. Thanks Open Studio! Art to the Rescue!”

 

Virtual Summer Art Camps | Ages 6 - 12

After careful consideration, OSP has decided to move all of our Summer Art Camps Virtual!

But what does that mean?
    • Live camps will be streamed through Zoom 9:00AM-12:00PM for the 5 days of camp
    • Can’t make it to the live camp/can’t make it through the camp in one sitting? No problem! We will record the instruction from beginning to end each day and send out that instruction to all participants every day of camp. This means by the end of camp, you will have access to nearly 15 hours of art instructions you’re able to come back to any time you want!
    • We will provide art kits for each week of virtual camps, stuffed with art supplies to get you through a full week of art camp.

Weekly Themes:

Week 9: Best of Summer | August 3 – 7: *Virtual Only* All of Jan’s favorite projects, rolled into one week! If there was one week not to miss, it’s this one!
