Looking for an unforgettable outing filled with fun and creativity? Just walk in or plan ahead by making a reservation for a one-of-a-kind experience for kids and adults of all ages at
Make Meaning. Perfect for a mother daughter day or a fun activity for the whole family! There were enough choices for younger kids but I can imagine this is a pre-teen/teenagers dream. Planning a party? They have that covered too.
Recently, on a rainy morning my son and I decided to head to Bethesda and check out the newish art space. We were greeted by a friendly employee (an Associate Creativity Enthusiast to be exact) who took us to an immaculate, organized and color coordinated area where she explained the options to us; candle making, soap making, plaster painting, glass making, ceramics painting, canvas painting and cake decorating were the choices. Each activity had an assigned color and chairs to match where children would work. My son chose to paint a plaster treasure box (after I discouraged him from decorating a cake) which included using quick dry acrylic paint so we were able to take it home immediately. They gave him a disposable apron as well as a clean, large area to work and let us be. They have a snack bar you can purchase treats and drinks. The restrooms are clean and have changing tables.
The space is large and bright. One wall is full of windows overlooking Bethesda Row. My son loved watching all of the construction in between paint strokes. I was very impressed by how organized the space is and how attentive the staff were. In addition to dropping in, they offer Floor Parties, for guests wanting to celebrate within the store but don’t need a private room as well as VIP Private and Semi-Private Parties.
Our experience was affordable but I can see how it can easily add up depending on what you do. My suggestion would be to make sure and ask up front about pricing. Prices include everything you need to let your imagination run wild and make something amazing. Be sure and feed your meter as you could spend all day here!
