Tinker Time is an opportunity for children to engage in art exploration. Several stations are set up with a variety of materials, and ideas and technique for use of materials are offered, but children have complete creative control and enjoy moving freely between stations. Paints, oil pastels, clay, print making, wire and wood sculpture, stamping, cut paper collage... are some of the mediums found during Tinker Time. 

Parents enjoy dropping their artist off anytime during Tinker Time to run a few errands, take a break at the coffee shop, or stay at Tinker watching their artist at work. All ages are welcome, but if your child is under 4, we ask that a parent or caregiver remain with them in the studio.

**Tuesday Tinker Time will begin on Tuesday, June 6th and run each Tuesday until August 8th. Tuesday Tinker Time will not be held on July 3rd.
