If you’ve ever tried to get glitter out of carpet, you’ll understand the genius behind West Seattle’s brand-new kids’ craft studio, Young at Art. There, kids can paint, bead, glue, draw and, yes, glitter to their heart’s content without wreaking havoc on your home. Art teachers Theresa Anderson and Andrea Watterson, who host after-school programs at Schmitz Park Elementary, opened the studio last November; the place is jam-packed with art supplies and offers open studio time in the morning, workshops in the afternoons, summer art camps and party options. Best of all: A back room is dedicated to…splatter painting!

$5–$15/hour. West Seattle, 5962 Fauntleroy Way SW; 206.937.0736;
