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 215.512.7205.  


We are right along Route 73 in Skippack Village.  Parking is available at the studio, directions and other info here.

Artsy Afternoons Open Studio Times​

Drop in to create fun ceramics, craft, and sculpture projects.  Designed for ages 3+, younger ones might need some help from Mom/Dad.  It's just $18 per person regardless of the project.  


Projects take about an hour or hour and a half to complete, you do not need to attend the full scheduled time but please come at least 45 minutes before the end time to ensure you can complete your project.  Adult projects are also offered.  Ceramic projects will need to be picked up after firing (about 2 weeks), the other projects can be taken home the same day.  The projects change each week, but there's always a selection of clay pieces, paintings, and our unique multi-media creations to choose from.  ​ You can drop off the kids, or stay and make something with them.​


We will be taking a small break from Artsy Afternoons while we get our new location set up.  Once the classroom in the new space is ready, we will be hosting Artsy Afternoon every single Saturday!  So stay tuned!!



Our Retail Shop is Open at the New Location

Classes will be Moving in March


Engage Art Studio has spent 5 fantastic years in Skippack Village, but we've outgrown our quaint starter location and will be moving to our new permanent home at 1005 North Gravel Pike in Schwenksville at the historic and uniquely beautiful Weldon House building!

Our Grand Opening Event will be held Saturday March 9th from 4-8 with free crafts, special paid projects, refreshments, and lots of fun!


The first floor of our new building is open! Come check out the Artisan Retail Gallery Shop featuring antiques and refinished furniture, fine art, pottery, handpainted signs, textile art, jewelry, and so much more!

The shop is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12-4, with expanded hours coming when we move full time to the building.


Classes will still be held in Skippack for now as we renovate the second floor of the building for our classroom/studio space,and anticipate moving classes over in March.  With this huge new location, we will be expanding our class schedule and can host private groups at almost any time!


And there is more to come at our fantastic new home!  In the summer we'll be working on a dedicated birthday party room as well as revamping the outdoor patio to host classes and private parties!

Unique Projects - Ages 9+ - Designed for kids who have a creative mind and want to work in more detail and with a bit of design input, this class will spend their time working on advanced projects over multiple weeks.  They will always complete at least 2-3 projects in a session, up to 4 depending on the complexity of each.  The projects are always new and changing, but to give you an idea of what we've done in the past - working lamps, ceramic bubble gum machines, marionettes, custom t-shirts, mosaics, large scale mixed material paintings.  Unfortunately, because we work on projects for multiple weeks and don't necessarily go in sequential order, this class is not recommended if you know of conflicting events which would cause numerous missed classes.  We recommend joining Art Jumble in the meantime, and saving Unique Projects for when you can commit to the full session.  Thank you for your understanding.
