In For A Penny - A Children's Studio, provides a nurturing space where you and your child can get your hands dirty and let you imagination run free! During studio sessions, children will delight in discovering creative arts through developmentally appropriate, creative, and open-ended activities. Our programs are underpinned by a belief that children learn best by playing and "doing," rather than sitting in front of a screen. So, at In For A Penny, our little artists are encouraged to get their hands dirty and let their imaginations soar, as they play, laugh, squeal and explore.

Our studio sessions are planned and run by a qualified and experienced visual arts teacher. We limit the number of participants in any one session to 10 children, so that attention can be given to the unique individual needs of each child. Our younger artists (under 5 years) are asked to attend with an adult so they can share in the wonder of artistic discovery together (after all, why should the kids get to have all the fun?!). Children over 5 years are welcome to come in on their own though parents welcome to stay too of course.

We make it a priority to create an atmosphere where kids and adults all feel safe and welcome to express themselves. Our studio caters for the needs of little people and big people alike, with a change table, child friendly toilet, room for prams, as well as tea, coffee and biscuits (for tired grown ups who need a few minutes peace!).

Follow our Facebook page for news and updates about holiday programs and special events (we will even be offering children's birthday parties very soon!). We can't wait to see you and your little artist at our studio for some colourful, messy fun!
