We are a true art studio for children where young artists see the power of experimentation and process. We do all sorts of creative art forms including painting, drawing and building as well as sewing and crafts. Children are always encouraged to follow projects they feel passionate about. Field trips to local galleries and museums are included each semester...Studio visits by local artists and much more :). We mix ages here so we've got first graders and 7th graders together and we love it <3.

There are just a few spaces available on certain days. Pick up available all days at Pierce and some days at Coolidge Corner School and Lawrence. (Because we try to create a balance with ages we need to look at this too while enrolling.)

Hope to see you soon!

All my best,
Amy
