With 36 classes to pick and choose from, your kids not only have the chance to try new things but to also explore and learn more about the activities they’re already interested in.

For example, there’s Anime Illustration, which explores the incredibly popular style of art and teaches kids how to draw their own characters. For those who enjoy bringing things to life in clay, or just love getting their hands dirty, they can venture into the exciting world of ceramics with Magic Mud and Mud Slingers. A-Pickin’ & A-Grinnin’ and All About Uke offer an opportunity to pick up an instrument and learn the basics, while Cosmic Kids and Darling Disney Crafts are the perfect creative opportunity for those crafty kids in your life.

Choose one class per time slot, and your child will take part in that activity at that time for the full week. Sign up for a single class, two per day, or for a full week of fun and creativity.
