tips for before and after your visit

Get dirty.

Being fully involved in your art making may get messy. We have smocks to protect your clothes and sinks to wash up when you’re done.

Focus on the process.

The learning and fun is in making the art. What tools did you use? How could you use them differently? Art is a language. What are you trying to say?

Try new things.

Think of new ways to explore your favorite art activities. Mix colors, use new tools or materials and add a design or pattern into your piece.
