         First Ever!!  PARENT NIGHT OUT @ Smartypants (Valentine’s Edition) Feb 16th 6-8pm  $20/kid* 

Space is limited – reserve your spot! *kids must be potty trained. 


Children learn best through uninhibited play and exploration. With this in mind, Smartypants strives to value the process of creating art over the finished product (though we sure do love the finished products too!). The space is tailored to imagination and sensory fun. Projects are open ended; encouraging children to immerse themselves in the process and play of creating art.


Drop by anytime we are open for Open Studio – where you can play, explore with art, and delight in self-expression. Smartypants has a plethora of art supplies at your disposal, multiple ‘sensory stations’, and ever-changing art projects to inspire creativity. There is sure to be something for every young artist’s mood, age and style — so come make a beautiful mess with us soon!
