Creative Cart Studio

The Creative Cart Studio is a mobile art venue that is adaptable to the needs or objective of your event. We do events such as group art projects, guided art projects, and material exploration.

Creative Cart Studio is a mobile art maker space that provides art activities to suit a variety of events.  While interacting with Creative Cart Studio, people create an artwork that they are able to take home with them the same day.  Creative Cart Studio typically uses at least two staff members to set up, take down, and interact with the public.  We are able to do guided lessons similar to an art classroom, provide materials for open ended exploration, or provide a vision and organization to create a group project.  The activity that is provided is customizable upon the objective of the event, and pricing will vary based on the materials needed, as well as the distance from central Minnesota.  Creative Cart Studio is committed to adhering to COVID regulations.
