Join us for Art class!

Tuesdays and Wednesdays, at 10:45 am and 1pm
Designed for ages: 3-10

Art classes at Hands-on House explore a variety of techniques and mediums all while encouraging budding artists to find their own style! Our creations are inspired by art history, seasonal shifts, and often tie back to our monthly Play Lab theme.

Class is free with admission! Advance registration is required; walk-in registrations will be accepted up to five minutes before the start of each class if extra spots are available.
