Are you looking for Workshops?
We will offer two keiki art workshops this weekend with fantastic instructors:
Super Sea Creatures
Saturday, February 17, 2:30-4:00pm, ages 5 & up, $15.
We'll draw and design underwater seascapes and fill them with fun creatures. Then we'll add a bit of color with watercolor paints and oil pastels. Finally, we'll top off our paintings with epsom salt to give them a bubbly sea foam look.
Sunday, February 18, 2:30-4:00pm, ages 5 & up, $15.
We will use all kinds of fun paper to create adorable 2-D animals that move and bend. Once we make them we can take them home to play with them, bend and pose them, and make up creative stories with them.
Spaces are very limited! Get more information about these and other workshops OR

About Art Explorium

Nurturing tomorrow's creative thinkers
Art Explorium provides a fun, safe place where children of all ages have the opportunity and the permission to create freely. We firmly believe that art experiences are an important part of every person's growth and development. So... WE provide the space and materials, YOU provide the ideas and make them happen!
Art Explorium strives to be an eco-friendly organization. Many of the art materials in our studio are items that would normally be thrown in the landfill (old pieces of fabric, used bottle caps, small boxes, magazines, ribbon, etc.). We collect these used materials from our friends and local businesses, and Art Explorium visitors give these items a new life as art.
We offer art classes, birthday parties, and field trips to our studio. We also offer Open Studio time - come on in with your family and dabble in one or all of our art stations which offer activities like painting, sculpting, drawing, making mosaics and more. See you there!
Come on by! During Open Studio time you are free to drop in, use our space and materials and explore the process of creating.
We also offer art classes, birthday parties and field trips to our studio!
Hours and price subject to change without notice.
Ample metered parking is available on the street or in the lot behind our building.
