Art Free Play

Join us in the studio for art-making and creative experimentation in a non-class structured environment.  Parents/care-givers can either spend one-on-one time with your children in this unique space or sit-back and relax while your children are hard at work.  

Reservation are not required, but are strongly encouraged.  During classes, birthday parties, field trips and other events we do limit the amount of kids that can be in the space.  From time to time we have events that close the whole studio.  Make reservations by clicking the "book now" button below or call us in advance!  901-425-3434

Please note that your child cannot be dropped off for Art Free Play time. 

$14 (plus tax) per child for non-members for 1.5 hours of Art Free Play; free for members.
