There’s a Drop In for Everyone.

Scroll down to find a time that works for you or your family. Many times will accommodate multiple ages.

Drop In Story time

Age: 2.5-5
Tuesdays 9:30-10:15 AM
Cost: $10/$5 members 
cash/check only 

NOT your usual story time. We choose books with a careful eye toward art concepts and themes that emphasize creativity, flexibility, and validation of everyone’s artistic worth, then follow with an art activity that explores fine art concepts in a way that connects to the story.

No need to register, just come on down!

Little Masters Drop In

Age: 3-5 years
Thursdays 10:30-11:15 AM
Cost: $10/$5 members 
cash/check only

Each week, we’ll take a look at works by different well-known artists, talk about what we see, and then explore the artists’ style in our own way. Pollock splatter paintings with a salad spinner? Invent your own shapes for a  Matisse collage? Check our Facebook page each Wednesday to see what artist is coming up next! Lil Dancing Yogis is before this; you can combine movement and art for your little one.
