For those busy days when art is definitely on the menu but a big clean up isn’t, shuttle your mini Monet over to Seattle’s newest art studio, West Seattle Art Nest. It’s the perfect space for messy maker time, clean-up free! And with drop-in classes, camps and birthday parties, your little artist will get a fully loaded, all-access pass to all the spaces, materials and projects he or she can handle.
