Make art with friends in your own backyard (or carport, or driveway)! We’ll bring you a weekly, 45-minute, parent-and-child art class for 4 to 8 children (ages 2-5) when you schedule a 6- to 10-week session. Each child (or pair of siblings) must be accompanied by a participating parent or caregiver. Classes are process-based and customized for the age range of your group, drawing from our Messy Mixed Media curriculum, and the practices we developed during our 17 years of drop-in Messy Art at PLAY. (Scheduling is subject to teacher availability & location.)

Our mobile art set-up is eco-friendly, and features our original, portable, cardboard easels : ). Over time, we’ll teach your kids about green art practices through experience, including reincorporating materials into multiple projects and “unmaking” our art. In teaching outdoor classes over the summer, we’ve found many ways to limit water use for materials clean-up. (We have it down to a gallon per two kids, or less.)

If you’re hosting, we’ll ask you:

  • to provide a flat, child-safe, and reliably shaded area, large enough for our teacher and your whole group
  • to confirm participation with your group before we set up your private registration page

Your participants will need:

  • to wear “messy” clothes or bring their own art aprons
