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!!
Perfect for Scouts, Mom's Clubs, homeschool organizations and any other kids group to get together and have some creative fun. Choose from one of our favorite projects or let us create something based on your specific theme and age group. You can paint on canvas, sculpt from clay, create mosaics or decorative boxes, or have fun with one of our unique multi-media creations. We have fun ideas for almost any type of group, or let us know what you have in mind and we'll make it work!
We can accommodate up to 22 kids, but only 18 if there will be a majority of parents staying. And we can do projects for all ages. Ages 4 and up are fine to create on their own, younger ones will need Moms or helpers to stay with them.
Pricing is between $18-$28 per child depending on your project and group size.
Engage Art Studio can create a custom art project to help celebrate a special occasion like showers, bachellorettes, and birthdays. Or just plan a creative craft for your group or organization. We're more than just canvas painting parties, we can offer a custom project for your group in a variety of mediums.

Prices range between $22-38 per person depending on group size and project. We can provide a cake and paper products, or even help coordinate with local restaurants for catering, at an additional cost. Our studio can accommodate up to 16 people for group events.
Engage Art Studio
Throw an amazing birthday party for your one-of-a-kind artist! For the party, kids will have their faces painted and complete a quick craft while we wait for everyone to come, then we do the party art project, and at the end we enjoy cake.
Choose from the below party projects -
Painting Project ($300) - a step-by-step guided painting on a canvas panel that can be done in any theme of the birthday child's choosing. Or some general ideas would be pop-art portraits, a favorite animal, cupcakes, robots, or outer space.
Funky Mobile ($320) - paint and embellish cookie-cutter type shapes pre-made out of clay to assemble into a hanging mobile - your choice of fish, moon and stars, flowers/butterflies, all sorts of animals, sports, or hearts/stars.
Clay Pots or Boxes ($350) - build out of raw clay and glaze projects for color. The projects can be embellished in a variety of theme's such as animals, cupcakes, monsters, flowers, or with texture/patterns. (fired pieces will need to be picked up about 2 weeks after the party by the birthday family to distribute to party attendees)
And also choose a craft for everyone to create while we're waiting for everyone to arrive - design masks, star wands, colorful crowns, funny fake mustaches, or scratch art frames.
The cost indicated above with the project is for a party of up to 12 kids, plus $10 each additional child. The party is 1 hour and 45 minutes long . A quarter sheet cake and water/juice are included, along with all paper products, candles, etc. Feel free to bring your own snacks/drinks as well. A $50 deposit is required to reserve your date. We run parties on Saturdays from 1-2:45 and 3:30-5:15 or Sundays from 11-12:45 and 1:30-3:15. We can accommodate up to 22 kids for parties, 18 if there will be a majority of parents staying. It's a small space, so if you can encourage drop-offs that's helpful.

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!
