Drop Off – Youths

We require that you bring your child into the Artspace Lobby daily before each class to sign him or her in. Please see the Youth Schedule (above) for drop off times. Please DO NOT drop your child off at the curb or across the street. We will not be responsible for your child’s safety under such circumstances. If your child is a rising 6th grader or older, you may come in on the first day and sign a waiver allowing him or her to sign in (and/or out) without you for the remainder of the week.

Pick Up – Youths

We expect you to pick up and sign out your child promptly in the main Lobby. You will be required to show an ID. Pick up time is 12–12:10pm for morning classes, 4–4:10pm for afternoon classes, and 5:30pm for After Hours. There’s a $5 late fee charge for each 5 minutes after the designated pick up time.

After Hours

This is a relaxed and fun time from 4:00 – 5:30pm daily that includes art activities, games, and more. An additional fee of $25 per student for the week applies ($20 members). After Hours students will be signed out with the After Hours instructor.


Lunch is from 12-1pm each day. Staying all day but don’t want to pack a lunch? Select from the nutritious options, provided by our lunch vendor. Vegetarian options are available. Lunch is $5.50/day or $27/week.


What to Bring & Wear

If you are taking only one class: bring a snack each day.

If you are a FULL DAY student: bring 2 snacks and a lunch each day OR order a lunch from our lunch vendor.

Don’t forget to bring a water bottle! In consideration of our students with peanut allergies, we ask that you NOT bring snacks or lunches with peanuts or peanut products.

Everyone should wear comfortable shoes and dress for mess!
