General Information

Gallery Scavenger Hunt

While you are here, do our Gallery Scavenger Hunt!

Giving kids an appreciation for art encourages exploration, self expression, logical thinking, self-esteem, imagination, and creativity. We’ve made up a fun little scavenger hunt for your family to do together at the Art Center! Just stop by the front desk anytime for the scavenger hunt. 


We'd love to have you all, but space is sign up today!

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Your space isn't confirmed until you have completed our online registration through RegFox. It's easy, just follow the link below the class you want.

The Art Center supplies all art materials for each class unless the instructor asks for something special for a specific class.

If you need to cancel your child's registration, please give us 48 hours notice in case we have a waiting list! You will be able to receive a full refund if we're notified in advance. If you need to cancel within 48 hours of the class date, you’ll receive an internal credit to use towards another class. By canceling within 24 hours of a class or not showing up, you will not get a refund or credit. Thank you for understanding.
