Crawling for Kids


Melk is hosting a free, hands-on workshop for *kids of all ages during the Eastside Culture Crawl. This year participants will be able to create unique works of art and/or holiday cards using nature-inspired stamps and ink. An artist will guide the process in an open craft-table setting at the studio — a fun and engaging way to encourage creative participation during the Crawl.

Crawling for Kids wouldn’t be possible without the amazing support of our partner Opus Art Supplies. With their support, we are able to give children and parents the opportunity to engage with the visual arts in their community on a tactile level, while helping foster a love of the arts; connecting them with the Crawl in a way that they will remember for years to come.

We look forward to seeing you there!


Our studio is wheelchair accessible and walking distance to many other artist studios. Street parking is available on Clark Drive and streets surrounding the studio, easily accessible by transit and within walking distance of Commercial Drive.

Visit the Eastside Culture Crawl’s site for further information and announcements regarding the art festival.

*Please note; young children are not intended to be left at the studio without parent supervision.
