Homeschool Art Class - Ages 5-12 - Designed for children who are homeschooled, this class will help you further expose your child to a variety of fine art areas with a different one-day project offered each week.  We'll work on drawing fundamentals, ceramic sculpture, and a bit of material and style exploration with mixed media projects and art history based lessons.  Dates and projects are listed below, simply register for those you would like to attend and pay for each class as you go. 
Class is held for ages 5-12 from 12:30-2, Schedule and cost information below


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.  

Class is held for ages 9+ from 4:45-6 pm.

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 located at the intersection of Gravel Pike and

Spring Mount Rd in Schwenksville. 

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.  There are kids projects for ages 3+ and adult projects as well.  Prices range from $20-$25 per project.


Make it a play date, a fun family afternoon, or a ladies' afternoon out​!


Projects take about an hour 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.  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.​


Call to reserve your space (484.968.3103), walk-ins are welcome too!

Saturdays from 11-4
Mondays and Fridays from 12-5



You do not need to attend the whole time, projects take about an hour to complete.


There won't be any Artsy Afternoon on Friday 11/29 as we prepare for Holiday Events.  Please join us Saturday 11/30 for the Holiday Gift Making Workshop (regular Artsy Afternoon projects will be available as well)
