Booking Your Program

Please contact us at if you have questions or want to book your group’s program.

We have two historic art studios available. There is a minimum charge of 20 students for one studio, or 38 for both studios. Schoolhouse Studio holds up to 34 youth participants; Pottery Studio holds up to 24 youth participants. If you are booking just one studio, we will evaluate your booking request and either confirm that we can accommodate your group or work with you to find a different date. We will book your group in the studio that provides the best balance given any other bookings for that day.


Q: Is there a minimum number of participants that can attend the program?

A: We charge for a minimum of 14 participants.

Q: Is it free for adults to attend the program?

A: Yes, leaders and volunteers are free to attend. Adults who wish to create their own art projects while helping the children are asked to bring $5 cash to cover material cost. If your group wishes to cover this cost, just let your instructor know and we’ll add it to the invoice. We recommend a ratio of 1 adult per 8 children.

Q: Can you adapt your program for our group’s needs?

A: We would love to work with you to create a relevant enriching experience for your group. Please email us at about your requirements, including relevant topics that we may be able to incorporate into our programming. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
