Creative Classes
You and your little designer can gather together in the mommy-and-me sewing session while making a tooth fairy pillow or infinity scarf. Relaxing time? Let little yogis calm themselves, then create a craft like a dream weaver. Or your tactile tot will love spending hands-on time with you rolling clay. Find that inspirational class that fits your family fun chart!

Entertaining Events
Join festive happenings led by local artisans. Your budding musician can dress-up, dance and beat an African drum inspiring learning and fun with artist Nana. Holiday happenings? Take the easy-road to holiday cards by snapping that perfect yearly pic with Photographer Jaime Murray, or let little pancake-lovers eat with Santa, then create an ho-ho-holiday craft.

Drop-Off Times
Drop your little one off on Fridays for a storybook reading and pizza party, then grab a bite to eat with the hubby. Or, if you have a yen for a little free time during the day? Become a Mint Studio member then drop-in and drop-off your little bundle of joy. Not only do you get time for yourself, your tot, also, explores art with a new friend.
