PLAYDAY is the place for children to experience the joy of making ART in a fun, safe, clean, supportive, and collaborative studio environment.

During PLAYDAY's ART Activities, After School Programs, Camps, Custom Birthday Parties, and Special Events, our super positive highly trained instructors and spacious studios give children the opportunity to discover their creative voice and have fun while they’re doing it.

Making new friends is the added bonus!


PLAYDAY is designed to support children's creative enrichment and imagination through enhanced cognitive development, boosted

self-confidence, and refinement of problem solving skills, all while exemplifying great manners and interpersonal intelligence. Children are encouraged to imagine what they want to do, create projects through playing with tools and materials, share ideas and creations with others, and reflect on their experiences.

We crafted PLAYDAY to be a supportive and encouraging space for children to thrive in and out of our studios.



For our youngest participants, we offer Grown Up & Me ART & SENSORY experiences for children ages 1-4.


COLOR EXPLOSION, WATER COLOR WORLD,  SCULPTURE, FIBER FRENZY, CARTOONING, LITTLE ARCHITECTS, are just a few of our meticulously designed 60-minute creative experiences for children 5+!

Monday-Friday during Camp 5+ and After School 5+, children enjoy a series of activities that introduce them to ART history, reveal creative talents, and most importantly have fun with new friends and creative role model instructors. 

From regular programming to specialized workshops, you have so many opportunities to immerse your child in the world of ART. Not to mention, our very popular custom birthday parties.  Our programming sits at the intersection of planning your schedule and your child's interests. 


Children 4 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Children 5+ can be dropped off.  All offerings are DROP IN space permitting.

Kids and parents alike rave about our instructional staff.

(Probably because we hire such awesome people).

Every PLAYDAY instructor is a highly trained artist with a passion for sharing their knowledge and diverse academic experiences with children and thus keeping your little one engaged and learning.

Our team of instructors are regularly praised for their patience, kindness, and attentiveness.

(Don’t just take our word for it, read our testimonials!).


"My son loves it here! He's always excited to go and proud of all the artwork he takes home. The instructors are awesome too. I love that each student gets their own table and space."

Can parents participate?

We’re glad you asked! Parents are welcome to join their children in their creative process during our signature Grown Up and Me (GUM) class.  GUM is designed with our tiniest artists in mind (ages 1-4) and specially structured to keep their little minds engaged and exploring.

What do I bring to class?

Your child will need a nut-free snack or lunch and their imagination. Be sure to fill out the waiver in advance of class.
