Summer Art Clubs Grand Rapids, MI

Our summer art clubs in Grand Rapids, MI are for bigger kids (grades 4-8) who want a little extra art in their lives.  Each day we meet from 4:30-5:30 and jump right into our creative topic for the week.
Participants are welcome to bring any supplies they would like, however, it is not necessary.
Please come prepared to enjoy, have fun, and learn.
