Scattered Paintbrushes


We are beyond excited for this summer season of creativity!

As always, we are ready for creativity, fun, learning & friendship!

This year we have made some changes & added new options to enhance our summer program.

NEW this year.....we will be hosting our summer program in TWO studio spaces.

(same location)

We are so happy to be able to offer our families the ability to drop off kiddos at the same location while allowing them to be grouped into a younger & older group to best accommodate their needs and interests. 

As always our artists will participate in activities that promote creativity, individuality, curiosity and self-confidence. Each themed week will introduce/use/practice various age appropriate art techniques & media. 



Please be patient with us and our new registration/payment platform. 

In order to hopefully make the registration process easier for our families, we are learning & working out the kinks.  

When registering it is really important to do ONE registration for EACH child. So your shirt sizes & discounts call apply correctly. 

If you have any issues with payments, discount, etc at check out..... just register your art weeks and select "offline" payment at checkout. You can then Paypal, venmo, drop or mail a check or pay with cc in studio. Call or email us with any problems.

If you are paying the $100 deposit only at time of registration, select pay "offline"  make payment via cash, check, pp, venmo, or credit card in studio. 

Please note child's name in any payment memo.
