ART CART FOR KIDS PROGRAM

Our current art program for kids is provided by partnering with schools and day cares that want to offer an art program on site. We create lessons and projects based on a child’s age and skill level — and then bring the art cart to them with all supplies ready to go. See the descriptions below.

Our core programs are 12-week sessions. If you would like us to create a customized program for you, please contact us.

If your child’s school is already enrolled in The Art Cart, you can sign up your child for classes at any time by registering them. There is a $30 registration fee for each child.
