What if it rains? Will you still go on the trip?  We’ll try our best to embrace the Scandinavian phrase “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” That said, sometimes the weather might just get in the way of our art experience. In those situations, we’ll need to readjust the itinerary, but will keep you posted of any changes.

How old does my child have to be? Our excursions have been planned for kids in grades k-2 most of the time, and our days are very active. We do not have nap times built into our time, and are unable to accommodate kids in Pre-K, or younger siblings of kindergarten kids in the program.

What is the staff to explorer ratio for the trips?We maintain a 1:5 staff ratio for all trips.

How many artist campers are there each day?Anywhere between 4 and 10 depending on the trip planned, but 10 is the most we will have.

How do you travel on your art adventures?We use NYC public transportation.

What will my child need to bring for their day?Kids should bring a lunch from home, along with a snack, and a water bottle.

What should my child/ren wear? Kids should wear something comfortable with shoes great for walking distances. Back at the studio, we have smocks but wear something you won’t mind getting messy!

Do you offer sibling discounts? Yes, there is a 10% discount for siblings on our 1 day camps.

What will you provide for camp?
-optional breakfast of maple and brown sugar oatmeal & seasonal fruit for kids that that arrive between 8-8:30am

-fruit, and pretzels throughout the day while at the studio
-Healthy snack provided for kids in aftercare between 3-6pm.
