Summer time is a special time in the studio! This year we have old favorites returning as well as some wonderful new offerings. Mihoko from Saori Worcester will be back with floor sized looms for two full weeks, we have a week of all sorts of building fun with Cities and Maps taught by Liana, Mixed Media Explorations taught by Milo, a dollhouse week where students will make a basic dollhouse and all that goes inside taught by Talia and lots more cool offerings :).

All of our studio classes are mixed school age. On any given day in the studio you might find 8 year olds and 12 year olds learning and making art together! It’s one of the things I have always loved about our studio.

We keep our classes limited to 11 children each week so everyone gets personal attention. Most weeks we have a daily drop in option if there’s space.
