Classes introduce materials, concepts, and techniques that enhance skills and encourage playful exploration of ideas that challenge your child’s imagination.

All materials provided. Classes meet 5 times unless otherwise noted. Children must be toilet trained.

New! Armory Summer Studio Extended Care: Students enrolled in afternoon classes can transition to extended care until 6 pm, where they can make art, play games, and meet new friends!
