february vacation week program for ages 5 - 10
The Fantastical Zoo - Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!
Join us for four full days of creativity and fun February 18 - 21st from 9 - 5pm at the Walter Baker Lofts in Lower Mills.
Families can also sign up for just a half day program…mornings (9 - 12:30) or afternoons (1:30 - 5).
After a trip to Franklin Park Zoo on our first day, we’ll make large plaster sculptures of animals and creatures. In a nurturing and playful setting, children will learn concepts of balance, design, construction, color mixing and painting. Each child will leave with an impressive work of art to adorn their room…a mascot for the home! We’ll make time to play some games, read books and even have a guest artist visit the class. The cost of this full 32 hour program is $250 (less than $8 per hour) and includes all materials and healthy snacks. We ask that children bring a lunch! The half day program is 14 hours total and costs $120 (roughly 8 per hour).
This Fall we are pleased to be providing after-school art classes with The Henderson School and the Lee Academy in Dorchester to provide quality after-school programming in the visual arts. Every Monday and Wednesday children from 1st - 5th grades will hone their skills in drawing, painting and sculpture with artworks culminating in apermanent display for the School’s Outdoor Classroom.
