Now open!

Winter Threads!

Work together to build a snowy scene on a gigantic felt mural and weave sparkly, fuzzy or indigo-colored yarn and add to our growing yarn sculpture. 


Paint My Ride

A car can be a canvas too! Work together to layer colorful paints, vibrant shapes and curious patterns and witness the transformation of a vehicle into a joyful, imaginative work of art.
