After School Program

After School Program

“Our son absolutely adores classes at Choplet Ceramics Studio. The staff are completely attentive and compassionate. He has gained so much from his experiences with clay; increased fine motor control, strategic thinking, and an increased attention span. I highly recommend classes for kids at Choplet for any kid who needs a rich art experience after school!” – Kirsten, mom to Jasper, age 7
