Drop-In ART  is not intended to substitute for formally instructed art education. It is intended only as a time for kids to express themselves artistically with minimal boundaries under the guidance of their parents/caregivers and under the supervision of The Paintbrush staff. For those looking for a teacher-lead class experience for your kids, please see our class listings for children ages 1 to 12.
