STudio Experience for Teens - AGES 13-18

Belger Arts provides one-week sessions of intensive, creative fun led by our experienced artist educators.  Young artists learn to enhance their creative skills while in the company of other real artists.  Most students come in with an idea of a clay project they have in mind.  Whether it be gaining more experience on the pottery wheel and making a plate setting, learning more about glazing or other ceramics surface treatments, our artist educators can meet them where they are and take them to the next level.  Housed in our Membership Studio at Belger Crane Yard Studios, Studio Ex participants are separate from the roar of the kids at Summer Art Camp.  All sessions are Monday – Friday and include outside artist visits and field trips to area galleries.

Full Session (11:00 am – 5:00 pm): $225

Location: Belger Crane Yard Studios, 2011 Tracy Ave, Kansas City, MO, 64108.

Those who enroll before February 28 will receive 25% off enrollment.  That's $168.75 for the week.
Those who enroll between March 1 and May 30 will receive 15% off enrollment.  That's $191.25 for the week. 

Scholarships are available.  Please send inquires to our Studio Manager at

Wanna have some fun while helping other kids go to Studio Experience?


Join us for our annual Summer Art Camp fundraiser!

When the weather outside is frightfully hot, come join us for a little wintry fun at the Belger Crane Yard Studios on Saturday, July 14th! Bring a buddy and come beat the heat while glaze decorating a pre-made ceramic Santa Claus. Whether you paint it in traditional colors or get wild and abstract, we'll take care of all the firing and you'll be able to pick up it up later or pay a little extra to have it shipped home - no chimney required.  We'll have great music and delicious themed treats and snacks from local businesses to keep you going.   

There will be two versions of the event: one family-friendly in the afternoon and one adults-only in the evening.  

Ticket proceeds go toward scholarships for our Summer Art Camp!

Saturday, July 14
2-4pm and 6-8pm
$75 per couple
