This exciting, new sensory space has been designed just for littles! During our scheduled workshop times, the studio will be facilitated by one of our early childhood experts. Artists will teach sensory driven paint workshops where littles will explore color mixing, tools, and texture. Join us all day for drop-in play as well!
