Young Artists Summer Studio Morning Workshops run Monday through Thursday, 9:00am – 1:00pm. Each week is designed as a separate, enriching program. We will have fun engaging with a wide range of artistic disciplines and materials in a multi-sensory studio environment. Limited class size and individual instruction nurture all levels of ability between the ages of 6 and 14. Seven weekly sessions reveal the diverse traditions and practices of global art and provide the opportunity for each child to express and explore their creative side. An exhibition at the Cape Ann Historical Museum caps the season with selected student works.
All New Specialty Workshops are designed to give older kids a creative outlet, introducing them to fun and sophisticated techniques and sparking new passions! We have teamed up with Cynthia Curtis and Amy Billings to bring a dynamic flare to our studio fun.
