About Us

Welcome to The Giggling Pig Seymour, our 4th franchise location located in the heart of historic downtown Seymour, CT.  Established in May 2022, the studio has quickly become a community destination for children’s art programming, including classes, parties, after school, and camp programs for children of all ages.  Join us in the studio for our award-winning arts programming, never-ending creative fun, and the limitless joy of possibility (and find us at the local libraries and after school programs too!).
