Try a FREE Art Class
Want to give The Purple Bicycle a test drive before registering? We love welcoming new students to explore their artistic abilities in our fun-filled studio. That’s why we’re offering a FREE trial class for families interested in weekly lessons.
Please let us know which class you’d be interested in trying. All our lessons are based on age and interest, so we’d like to match your little one with an appropriate class. Make sure to review our trial class rules below. We hope to see you soon!
A FREE Trial class, for new students only, if space is available. Students fully enrolled in class get priority during the registration process, and those enrolled in a Trial class will be bumped to the waitlist. There is a $20 No-Show fee for those enrolled in a Trial Class.
Our classes meet weekly throughout the school year. Art studio classes are process-based, meaning we focus on the making and the doing rather than the finished product, and children come home with artwork they feel really proud of.
