Due to COVID-19 and in the interest of public safety our studio is closed until further notice. We are re-opening in stages and currently only the retail portion of our store is open.
Our store hours are M-F: 10-4, Sat: 10-2, Sun: Closed. If you are healthy and feeling safe we would love to see you in our store! We want you to feel safe when you visit us and have implemented changes such as:
  • Requiring masks on all customers under the age of 2
  • We ourselves are wearing masks
  • Acrylic divider at the cash register
  • Directional markers and 6′ spaced waiting spots at the register
  • Hand sanitizer available at counter
  • Counter and Credit Card machine are wiped down after every use
  • Sanitizing high touch surfaces
  • Limit of 4 customers in the store at one time
We want to thank you for supporting our small business and wish you all good health during these changing times.

Messy Art is currently closed…

…but when we’re open check out the fun things we do!

Drop in weekdays for a morning of messy fun! Explore our imagination stations full of paint, crafts, process based art and more. Crafts are designed as starting points with no limits on interpretation which makes it fun for both kids and adults. We have large t-shirt smocks for the kiddos and aprons for grown-ups so you can keep the mess on the art and not on your clothes. Projects change weekly but our interactive painting window is always ready for the next masterpiece!

If all that creativity makes you work up an appetite you can always take a snack break or read a story in our sitting area.

Pricing is per child. Grown-ups join in on the fun for free!


Tuesdays and Thursdays include story time and a fun story related art project! Story time is included with regular studio admission so come early or stay afterward for even more art!
