Kid's Ceramics

Every Wednesday from 1:30 – 2:30 we are conducting supervised sessions for kid’s to learn the basics of working with clay. Minimum age is 5. These drop-in sessions are $5. After 2 sessions, they are free to LAC members. Family memberships are only $60 / year and include a total of 4 family members. Additional members can be added for $15 each.

Mommy & Me

These are arts and crafts sessions  for Mommies (Parents or Guardians) with toddlers and pre Kindergarteners (approx. ages 1.5 to 4 yrs). Parent and child will explore a variety of art materials and mediums. This creative experience allows child and parent to work on manipulative skills, communication, relationship bonding, foundations in art and creative expression. The process and experience is more important than the end product.
Currently, two sessions are held each Monday,  9:30 am – 10:30 am, and 10:30 – 11:30. The same lesson is held at each session so, please attend just one per week. Call to ask about exceptions (as arranged for holidays, etc)
Current cost is $5 per session for first child, $3 for second, and $1 for additional. Parent/child do not have to attend consecutive weeks and may choose any Monday to attend when classes are in session. Child must come with an adult.

Enroll now at the Lanai Art Center Gallery or at any Monday class. Class size is limited by space available.

Please note: no sessions are being held during the summer school break. Please check back here or on our FaceBook page for next start up dates!
