When my kids were little this was one of our favorite things to do on a Friday morning. They were so happy to be able to paint, use glue and glitter in liberal amounts (most of which ended up on the floor) and mold clay into little things which we still have today.

This is such a fun class! The instructors/facilitators at BCA are awesome and fun. The kids have a blast...and so do the caregivers! Totally flexible with hours (some people go right at 9:30 others trickle in at 10:30) and creative projects. Highly recommend it!

Went for the first time this morning with my 4 year old son and 16month old daughter. They loved it! The two ladies that were working were wonderful and very helpful! We can't wait to go back!

I felt more like we were...more

great time for the youngest and older kids to explore art materials at their own pace and interest. nice time to interact during this activity with other parents/caregivers and children. supplies provided and opportunity to take home a crafted pottery project too.
