The Giggling Pig has been offering outreach programs since 2014. We work with schools, troops & clubs, assisted living facilities, senior centers, and skilled nursing centers. We recently developed "Giggles on the Go”, a special art van that enables us to travel from town to town bringing art and creative ideas wherever we go. Each session is between 1- 1.5 hours long and, like in studio classes, focus on increasing self esteem through art. Whether it is a field trip to schools, or assisted living homes, you can guarantee that we will leave you with a smile and a giggle.

Images posted above will vary depending on the project. Techniques worked on will be explained each week at the end of class. We teach the children in a fun, but educational way, encouraging individual styles to shine through. Students are always being taught about breaking images down into shapes, learning about shadows ,shading and light source. You can request themes or season lessons for home school groups. We are always happy to adjust lessons, and help in any way we can to make sure the experience is a positive one for both parents and students.

Field Trips

A Creative Day Out!

Throughout the year we have the privilege of meeting many children through field trips. We paint with them, create with them and of course — we giggle! We offer an array of different projects to choose from including painting on canvas with step by step instruction.

The children really enjoy the experience and are always impressed with their ability. 


Field Trips to The Giggling Pig include:

  • Learn to paint on canvas through step-by-step instructions

  • Story read by author, illustrator & studio owner, Hannah Perry
