Do we have to wear masks in The Gallery and The Studio?
Due to the rise in the Omicron variant all students, K - Adult, and teachers will be required to wear a mask during class. We understand you may need a mask break, students are welcome to take one at anytime in our enclosed courtyard.
What is the different between The Studio and The Gallery? How do I know which building I am in?
The Art Studio has expanded and now is both 5 and 7 Trading Post Way. Building 7, our original building, is called The Studio, while our new space, building 5, is called The Gallery. In addition to The Studio being a building, The Studio is the entity under which all of our classes, summer camps, and workshops function, while The Gallery as an entity is our fine art gallery and parties/events.
Kindergarten - 5th grade classes will be in The Studio (7 Trading Post Way) and 6th - 12th grade classes will be in The Gallery (5 Trading Post Way). Our adult classes and design classes may change buildings. Additionally, you will be notified what building you are in when you sign up.
How do I register for a class or camp?
What do I need to bring to class?
During the school year students should bring a sketchbook (any size, partially used one is fine) and a smock (a large, old shirt works well). Sketchbooks are available for purchase for $6.95 + tax in The Art Studio.

All materials, except for a sketchbook, are included. Occasionally a request for an item be sent to class from home. We do have smocks available for use, but students may bring their own.

Do you offer discounts?
Discounts are given during the school year to families with 3 or more children enrolled in a session. No discounts are available for our summer camps.
How do I know when a new session starts?
A reminder email is sent a few days prior to the session with details about dates, lesson, and costs.
My child may or may not want to take classes all school year. How do I let you know that he/she wants to continue or discontinue attending?
Once signed up, it is assumed students will be continuing for the rest of the school year. If your child decides to stop, please send an email or reply to the reminder email letting Maddey know, so she may offer the seat to a child on the waiting list.
Where do I look to see if class is cancelled?
If class is cancelled for any reason, an email will be sent to those students expected in class that day. It will also be posted on the website. In the case of inclement weather, if schools close or cancel after school activities, The Art Studio typically closes as well.
May my child bring a snack or drink to class?
Students are welcome to bring a drink (preferably water), but no food to class.
Does my child have to participate in the Art show?
Children do not have to submit work for the Art Show. Once students realize their work is on display, not them, they usual get excited about participating.
How does my child get involved in submitting a flower piece to the Philadelphia Flower Show?
Information about the show and how to enter will be posted on The Art Studio website when we receive information from the committee. The 2022 International Flower Show will once again be held in June. With that in mind, we will begin working on pieces in the Spring.
