Creative Play

Creative Play is designed to provide our youngest innovators, ages 3-7, the opportunity to draw, paint, design, build, invent and engineer the world they imagine. As an official Imagination Chapter, we’ll participate in global design challenges and share our art and inventions on our Facebook Page.

Classes are free and meet once a month on Saturdays, 10-11:30 am. Parents are welcome to stay (but it is not required).

Please note, due to social distancing guidelines, class sizes have been reduced and pre-registration online or by phone (724.652.2882) is now required. No walk-ins will be accepted. To safeguard your health and the health of others, please read our updated policies.
