Let’s start the new year with meeting new friends while painting pottery and other crafts in a relaxing atmosphere of our studio. We will create a unique step by step project combined with a storytime created to provide joyful entertainment.


Children will be accompanied by a caregiver, who accordingly to an individual child’s ability is going to be engaged in the project more or less. The children will start off painting a step-by-step project based on a story, which will be read during a break. We will be using sponges, Q-tips, and brushes and decorate them with their fingerprints. Afterward, our studio artists will personalize the piece and turn the fingerprints into small animals, flowers or butterflies, depending on the design theme of the day.Craf
