Contact us for information about our next Creativity Workshop ::

Young Artists Creativity Workshop is an engaging five-week adventure in the arts. Your child will experience a delightful variety of materials and techniques in a positive, fun environment where individuality and creative exploration are encouraged.

  • Each child receives a special gift– their very own Inspiration Box, decorated and filled especially for them by a seasoned artist from across the United States and Canada. Each is unique. Inside are fun materials, supplies and inspiration carefully selected to spark the child's imagination and start them on their creative journey. A number of these items may be kept and used for a lifetime.

  • When the workshop is complete, your child may participate in our art show, to experience the excitement of exhibiting his or her own work at a gallery in Southampton.

  • The environment we've created is one of cooperation, teamwork and appreciation for what each of us has to offer. We have designed a number of art projects where children may practice these beneficial skills.

How small are the classes?

Typically, we limit enrollment to 3 - 5 children for each session. Classes are kept small for personal attention, to consider each child's individual needs and provide age appropriate activities.
