In response to school closings ArtStart staff have prepared a variety of Creativity Kits with an educational and artistic flair!Fill the time with these amazing kits. Many kits connect learning in the arts with other academic areas. Kits contain creative materials from ArtStart’s ArtScraps or brand new art materials, a study guide with visuals, connections to kid-friendly on-line resources, and directions on how to create the art project. Most kits are priced at $20; those with new art materials, a bit more.
Today, ArtStart reviewed the COVID-19 challenge to the health and well-being of customers, clients, artists, and staff.
We are making the following temporary adjustments:
As of Friday, March 13, ArtStart will temporarily close our retail operation, ArtStart’s ArtScraps, located at 1459 St. Clair Avenue, Saint Paul, 55105.
We are also cancelling our birthday parties through March 29.
However, we are not slowing down! We will be doing a deep clean of ArtStart’s ArtScraps, so when this health challenge is over, we have a pristine environment for all to shop.
Also, we are working remotely and are available via phone, email and video conferencing for spring and summer program bookings that include workshops, school residencies, birthday parties, and fieldtrips.
If you need to reach any staff please contact Cindy Smith at 651-276-3260 with a text or voicemail. Thank you for your understanding and support.
