Toddler Studio: Painting, Printmaking & Papier-mâché
Dates & times vary, please Select Options below
Your child is going to make a mess, create something beautiful and make even more of a mess and you don’t have to clean it up. Our Toddler Studio, suitable for ages 18 months through 4-1/2 years includes painting on large surfaces, creating papier-mâché animals with the other kids and each child will work on their own series of prints, that they will keep (actual frame-able art that you create with your child).
This is a hands-on workshop where parents, grandparents & caregivers are expected to participate. The art process we teach is printmaking, though for the toddler studio, we focus a bit more on painting and move through a number of activities to keep the group engaged.
Some of the activities will include painting, hand/foot prints, working with different materials and textures to come up with artwork that will run through our (kid friendly) printing press.
What is the Age Group?
Toddler studio is best for ages 18months through 4.5 years. This particular session functions more as an open-studio, where kids can explore the variety of art activities.
What Should they Wear?
Smocks are available, and all inks/paints are water-based, non-toxic and clean with soap & water. We do suggest wearing clothes that you don’t mind getting messy.
What do we get to Keep?
Each child will create a series of their very own individual prints. The inks we use stay wet for a while (we have clothes lines for drying). Parents can either pickup the prints at a later date, or take them with you (we have paper bags to carry prints home).
We also have our Custom Sketchbooks and Notecards on display which can be ordered through our website.

What is Printmaking?
If you have no idea what printmaking is, here are a few pics that have inspired us to put this workshop together. Printmaking is a beautiful process that celebrates the “happy accidents” and children love to work with different tools to create something new. We have built a ‘Kid-Friendly’ Printing Press that everyone has a chance to operate and make their own prints. In addition, we have many other large-scale art activities throughout our 5,000 sq.ft. workshop.
We hope to see you there.
