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, air dry clay, print making, fabrics and yarn, wire and wood sculpture, stamping, cut paper collage... are some of the mediums found during Tinker Time.
Parents enjoy dropping their artist for 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, though weekly projects are designed for children ages 5-12. If your child is under 5, we ask that a parent or caregiver remain with them in the studio to enjoy Tinker Time as a make-together style class.
