“I had the chance to take my 5 year old to Open Studio – she was fully engaged in creation and worked with intense focus inventing and building, stringing, glittering and gluing…We had a wonderful experience and will come again. If you are looking for a creative space where your child can explore, learn and creatively grow, you’re in luck. I only have two thumbs but they are both way up!”
“I have had the privilege of taking my kids (5 and 9) to several open studios. Each time the kids go they are completely engaged. There are always several options for them to explore and create. The time flies by. The staff is amazing. Their energy is inexhaustible and they all truly seem to love being there helping the kids. My daughter also attended a week of “Fairy Camp” this past summer. She had a blast. At the end of the week she came home as a beautiful sprite, bedazzled with all her creations as well as with a lovely fairy home that still has a place of honor on her dresser.
It is so nice to let the kids loose in the studio without having to do any of the planning, set-up, and mess-making at home. Although every time we go I also come home inspired and see random objects in a whole new, creative light. I save bottle caps, corks, coffee sleeves, and more just in case I have a Meri Cherry inspired moment!”
