Start your weekend with a cross-generation creative collaboration!
Stop in for a fun, free Saturday morning art project with one of our creative and enthusiastic staff members. Pop your head in or stay for the whole session! Kids under 8 must be accompanied by a parent or older pal to help them with the project.

Kids of all ages now have full access to the PCA’s art materials and studio space!

The emphasis is on creative learning and play through art making, and kids are welcome to drop in for 15 minutes, or stay for the full session as they like. Parents can participate too!

No experience necessary and we’ll use the PCA’s sewing machines and fabrics, so no supplies necessary either. Class limited to 6 participants.
