Inclement Weather Policy

If the Annville-Cleona and/or Derry Township School Districts are released early or closed due to weather conditions, the studio will also be closed and art programming will be rescheduled. Due to scheduling constraints, make-up classes may not be offered the same night and time as the originally scheduled class. Best efforts will be made to allow for the majority of children to participate in the make-up class. Notification of cancellation and make-up classes will be posted on SPLAT's Facebook page and an email will be sent to participating families.

Looking for other ways to create? You can schedule an open studio reservation here to build your own Take-and-Make art kits or make a project in the studio.
