NEW in 2019 for Families!

Family Nights @ Art Beast

Check Back Here for details

Come and enjoy some Art Beast inspired quality family time with us! Our goal is to create a regular space for families to create and spend time together and to thank our members and visitors for their support of Art Beast and Waking the Village.

Family Night will feature activities and fun for all ages and even adults are encouraged to participate! We will have a handwork circle where you can bring in your own knitting or crochet projects to work on with friends (please email Leslie at if you can help lead the circle once or regularly) and thematic activities and projects designed for various ages. Family Night is not a drop off program, caregivers must remain on premises and supervise children at all times.

Make sure to regularly check our blog, social media, and newsletters to find out what Family Night activities are planned for each month and what day and time it will be held. This event is free for members and will feature a special admission rate for non members after 3 pm on the day of each event. To find out more about becoming a member of our Art Beast family, check out our membership options.

Family Night features:

  • Handwork Club & Self Directed Drawing/Writing Station-Bring your own projects and work on them here with friends. No instruction or materials provided for handwork, just a chance to craft together, ask questions, and get motivated! We will have writing and drawing materials on hand for self directed creative fun for all ages.

  • Art, Science or Movement Activity-A different activity or project offered each event and designed for kids and caregivers to do together!

Enjoy some Art Beast inspired quality family time! Please spread the word!

Contact Leslie at if you’d like to volunteer to help with Family Nights. I’d especially love to get volunteers to supervise the handwork circle and drawing/writing station and maybe to lead some projects or activities. It takes a village!

*This event is free for our members and non-members pay a reduced fee after 3pm when attending Family Night. This event was created to thank our members for their ongoing support and to encourage more families to become a part of the Art Beast family. Current class session runs Jan-May.

No drop offs or adults without children.

We look forward to building our community of families!

Our hosting teachers are donating their time, so if you’d like to show them a little extra appreciation we will have a donation/appreciation jar available in the classroom.
