We all need a break from instruction from time to time. Let your kids be the boss! Their imagination comes alive with exciting reuse materials, and time and space to explore. Your child enjoys a moment to catch up on homework, a hands-on group activity, some practical tool and technique instructions, and then self-directed but guided art time. Emphasis on learning and process, with long-term finished pieces to take home.

For children ages 6 (or 1st Grade) to 12. Year-long program follows the Berkeley Unified School District schedule. Choose 1-5 days per week, enrollment is for the duration of the academic year. Payment is due at the beginning of every month via credit card, check, or cash in person.

There is school bus service from LeConte, Malcolm X, and Oxford Elementary Schools. Walk-over available from Washington Elementary School on Mon/Wed/Fri.
