Additional Information Regarding Classes


Classes are offered weekly on the days and times listed above.  The school year is pre-divided into 5 sessions, some being 8 weeks long and others 6 weeks, and the start/end dates for each session are listed above.  There's generally room to start mid-session, so you don't have to wait, and we'll pro-rate the session price accordingly.  The kids come the same day each week for the full session and work on new projects each night.  I work hard to make sure we don't repeat projects so that the kids are always having fun and learning new things, and you can come session after session to make countless creative art projects.  

All supplies are included for class, as well as a smock for when we're being messy.  But we do often use materials which do not wash out, so please dress appropriately in case the smock does not catch everything.  Classes for ages 5 and up allow you to drop off, but I do also have a small seating area if you prefer to stay.


If you have a shy child, we'd be happy to offer a trial class for them to get to know the studio a bit, just give us a call to arrange.  Or Artsy Afternoon drop in times are perfect for that as well.


If you have any problems registering, you can email your details to register@engagearts.com or call 484.968.3103.  


We are located at the intersection of Gravel Pike and

Spring Mount Rd in Schwenksville. 

Parking is available at the studio, directions and other info here.


Unfortunately we weren't able to hold classes this spring, but check out our online options above, and we plan to be back in the fall with all of our awesome studio classes!
