Each Saturday there are two workshops, one at 10 A.M and one at 11:30 A.M. You are welcome to sign up for multiple classes but only one each day.

All materials are provided.

Walk-ins are welcome if space allows. We recommend you register to secure your space.

Registration: If you have additional questions call us at 401-365-1010.

Arrival time: Please arrive 5 -10 minutes before the class start time so we can stay on schedule and plan for a happy experience for everyone.

Location: The Empowerment Factory is located inside The Hope Artiste Village in the 999 hallway, Studio #707.

Main Entrance: This entrance has a handicap ramp. This building has many entrances and may be confusing to newcomers, so these are the two entrances we recommend. Through the 999 Main St. hallway entrance, you can find us halfway down the hall on the right.

Side Entrance: On Saturdays you can also enter the building from a side entrance located across from 141 Warren Avenue. Our studio is at the end of a small hallway, on the left.

Parking: Our art workshops coincide with the popular Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers Market, so parking may be sparse. There is additional parking in the back of the building off of Esten Ave.

Pick up: Parents are welcome to stay during the class or leave your child and come back. Please note that if you are dropping off your child for the 10am class, please pick them up by 11:15 am. If you are attending the 11:30 am workshop, please pick up at 12:45 pm.

The Farmers Market closes at 1pm and all children must be picked up by 1pm.

These classes are free but we donations are welcome.

The Empowerment Factory is a non-profit dedicated to giving children the skills they need to lead happier, healthier, more empowered lives. Every child should feel that they matter and can make a difference in the world around them.
