My 4.5 year old daughter had a lot of fun. My 2.5 year old daughter on the other hand got bored really fast. All in all we had a good time!

Had a fun time with our three kids 4, 6, 10 years old. Our two girls 6 and 10 absolutely loved it and we will be coming back for them for sure. Our 4 year old boy enjoyed little things here and might be a bit early for a boy his age to be engaged and create. But then again it could just be kid to kid. Price is right on the border for me in terms of value. However when my girls make a comment, without us asking, that they loved it, it says that you might just have something here.

Go early right when they open, or towards end of day. Space is limited n can be very crowded. Orherwise, we loved it!

After your child has created her masterpieces, make sure you separate them and set them to dry ASAP. They will put them on a large piece of cardboard that will have them overlapping, and then put another piece of cardboard on top. When you get home, you should separate the artwork immediately, otherwise it will all stick together.

From Our Editors

A sprawling salad bar stands center stage within Art ala Carte's studio. But you won't find lettuce and dressing inside. Instead, the bar dispenses ingredients for creativity: water colors, beads, and other art supplies. Each visit grants kids, teenagers, and parents unlimited access to these supplies, enough to create countless necklaces, collages, and portraits. And much like the craft days at regular salad bars, things often get messy. Luckily, the studio's staff takes care of all cleanup. In fact, an absence of parental involvement in the creative process is one of the staff's few stipulations. While adults are welcome to create alongside kids, Art ala Carte believes little artists should make their own creative choices. In this way, art can help them gain the confidence Mick Jagger developed after his mother stopped holding the mic for him on tour.

Because of their belief in empowering young ones, Art ala Carte brings its studio to as many kids as possible. They give away memberships to families in need, and the team takes a mobile version of their art bar to schools and community areas.

Portland Guide

Few cities would embrace such an unconventional slogan as “Keep Portland Weird,” but the liberal Pacific Northwest haven revels in its eccentricities. Visitors can find stickers bearing this phrase pasted on local businesses that range from an art-house movie theater to a donut shop that once glazed its baked goods with NyQuil. Many of Portland's residents see alternative culture as the norm—quirky boutiques, cafes, locally minded farmers markets, and outdoor festivals all embody the city's counterculture proclivities.

Originally planned with strict urban-growth boundaries that left plenty of room for parks and green spaces, the city is now laced with extensive bikeways and miles of leafy trails that cross plots such as Forest Park. Many of these parks are destinations in their own right: Pioneer Courthouse Square holds free concerts and festivals in warm weather, giving locals good reason to refer to it as “Portland’s living room.” Governor Tom McCall Waterfront Park sprawls across the west bank of the Willamette River and was recently named one of America’s greatest public spaces by the American Planning Association.

The city's progressive environmentalist culture is also reflected in the numerous restaurants, cafes, coffee roasters, and brewpubs that serve sustainable and local cuisine. In many neighborhoods, streets are narrow and the blocks are compact, which explains why many residents forgo cars in favor of walking shoes, fixed-gear bikes, and vintage trolleys.

Portland has also been called a city where the old meets the new: Catholic cathedrals and old drawbridges share a skyline with high-rise buildings that house a growing number of tech companies. In Nob Hill, upscale Mediterranean, French, and Vietnamese restaurants coexist with original Victorian homes. Formerly home to little more than empty warehouses, the Pearl District has recently sprouted a bevy of art galleries and specialty loft boutiques. Portland boasts one of the largest collections of microbreweries in the country, and a good number of them can be found in this culturally hip neighborhood.

Two of Portland's main attractions are the International Rose Test Garden and the authentic Japanese Garden—landmarks that reflect the city's blend of Asian and European sensibilities, as well as its residents' affinity for high culture. Portland Art Museum, the Pacific Northwest's oldest arts facility, houses works from the European masters to modern art; other museums highlight interactive science exhibits and local maritime history. One of Portland's must-see literary landmarks is Powell's City of Books, the world's largest independent bookstore.
