Dress for Mess
Please make sure that your child is dressed in clothing that can get messy. We allow children to get totally immersed in their artwork. We offer children the opportunity to make art in a way they could not do at home or at school. They often come home covered in dried paint, glue, and glitter. We do not use smocks because they only cover part of the children’s bodies and many children find them uncomfortable and hard to move around in. Part of making art is getting messy. We want our children to have an unhindered experience.
The paint we use says that it is washable and comes out of clothing, however, that has not always been our experience. Some colors do not always wash out of clothes. It is best if you designate art clothes for your child and have them wear those clothes each week to Young at Art. We also have Young at Art T-shirts you can purchase at the studio, if desired.
