Morning Classes
Bring the whole family for a morning of art! Choose a 4-week session (whichever dates work for you), or stay all 8 weeks. But enroll early--summer classes fill fast!

This two-hour class is structured like our school-year AMM course--and introduces the younger artist to a variety of media, including acrylic and watercolor paint, chalk and oil pastel, and various clays for sculpture: red Navajo, sculpey and Model Magic. Children learn beginning artistic technique, but in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Activities also include music, stories, circle time and stations, in addition to a romp in our backyard midway through.

Sibling Discount: $86/one day; $164/two days; for each 4 week session.

These 90-minute classes are identical to our year-round Fine Arts course--and introduce students to Sketch, Paint, Sculpture and Mixed Media art. Students will have a chance to use different materials and techniques--which include acrylic and watercolor paint, chalk and oil pastel, and red Navajo, sculpey and Model Magic clay. Imagination and creativity are sparked here--attributes that research shows improve academic skills. Gain as much as you would from a summer of tutoring--but have a whole lot more fun!

** If a younger sibling is in AMM, Fine Arts' students are welcome to stay until noon. Supervision in our backyard is provided for an additional $20/month.
