My child had a fabulous time at the drawing and painting class! They came home inspired to create, and they have already asked me when they can go back. So glad to have Maker Studio Kids in the neighborhood.
Please continue to reach out to families and publicize your classes! Weekday class times are a bit tough with school times. Maybe consider more weekend classes?

The instructor was really fun, nice, and easy to talk to during the camp. Instructions were easy to follow. My daughter thought that the final project was really cool.
Sewing project was a little difficult sewing by hand because it was hard to push the needle through the "leather". But after camp we finished with a sewing machine.
