Borshell Children’s Studio

The Art Association's Borshell Studio is located on the 3rd floor. Our youth art programs encourage creativity and self-expression through supervised art exploration in a safe and supportive environment. In each program our professional and caring instructors give students individual instruction working on projects within the students capacity and at an age appropriate level. In order to assure a positive and successful experience we ask that caregivers please abide by age restrictions.



Sign up for an extended day on all scheduled camp days for an additional $12/day. Full day is from 9am-3pm and extended day, “aftercare” is up to 5:30pm. We welcome parents/caregivers to pick up anytime before 5:30. You must pre-pay for a 5-punch card before your child attends aftercare. Remaining punches can be fully reimbursed.

Drop Off Time 9 – 9:15am in specified studio for your child’s camp. Please, do not drop off children before 9am. Our staff is not available before 8:45am and cannot be responsible for supervision before 9am. Please accompany your child to his/her classroom to sign-in.

Pick Up Time is 3:00pm. If you need to pick up your child earlier, please make prior arrangements with camp staff.  Your child must be signed out at pick-up.


Children should dress appropriately for art projects. Many classes use dyes, inks or paints that may stain hands and clothing. Dress your child in old clothing or send an apron/work shirt, as the Association cannot be responsible for clothing damaged in art class. Weather permitting, there will be breaks and projects outside including supervised lunch and play at Phil Baux or Miller Park. Your child must be equipped with: sunscreen, appropriate clothing for outside-including recommended shoes for walking (closed toe and supportive), an ample and nutritious lunch, additional snacks and a water bottle.
