A fun kids-only program at Wish- after school art club! We are offering a safe and clean space where students can get away from screens and do some hands-on learning. We are now offering TWO sessions based on age, 4th-8th graders (meeting on Thursdays 3:30-5) and kindergarten-3rd graders (meeting Fridays 3:30-4:30). 

What is art club? Art club is a relaxed, instructor-led kids program that meets after school. We work with fired ceramics and clay, canvas and acrylic paints, and other art mediums. Students have the option to join us in our weekly guided projects, or are to free paint projects of their own choosing from our shelves. A dedicated instructor will be with our art club students to teach techniques and assist all students. 
​How Does It Work?  Sign up is flexible- have your student join in whenever you choose- weekly, monthly, or whenever they have particular interest in a project! Register online to reserve your spot or call the studio. Walk-ins can be accommodated as long as there is space, but we cannot guarantee availability.

How Much does it Cost? To join our guided project, it is $25 per week. See below for our schedule of guided projects. If they're not interested in the project that week, students can also choose to paint anything in our studio- there is a $5 art club fee plus the cost of the chosen project for this option. 

Benefits Art club is a drop-off program, kids only! Members are allowed to store unfinished projects at Wish and finish them during another session, and have access to other crafts if they finish early. All students will receive individual instruction and attention while they learn about and engage in art. They also get to have social interactions with kids of similar ages and interests.
