Unique Projects - Ages 8+ - Designed for kids who have a creative mind and want to work on more complicated projects, this class will spend their time working on advanced projects over multiple weeks.  They will always complete at least 2 projects, 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 8+ from 4:45-6 pm.

Fall Session 1, Fall Session 2, Winter Session, and Spring Session 1 for 8 weeks - $155 each

Please contact us to discuss your child's enrollment in this class, we will want to see samples of their work to determine if they are ready for this class.   If you have been in before, then you are of course approved to enroll in it now.

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.
