Engaging art projects at our studio will keep them calm and entertained. We have different activities appropriate for all elementary school age students:
Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops are welcome to earn their Art merit badges at Creative License® during group holiday activities. Canvas, clay, and ceramic painting will give troop members a chance to show off their artistic talents.
