Middle School Art
This Summer we've got brand new classes for Middle School students. From book-making to making sci-fi creatures and masks, architecture and fashion, join us mornings in the studio! These weeklong programs are a perfect mix of fun summer projects combined with a focus on learning age appropriate visual arts skills, participating in collaborative projects and group games, and learning about the creative community of artists on Cape Ann.

Collaborating with Community
We are excited to work with local organization and schools in 2018, partnering to combine resources and offer more to our community. Art is a natural partner with all subjects—from literacy to math and sciences and beyond. When students can combine learning with their imagination and love of art everyone wins!
This past February vacation we partnered with Ocean Alliance to offer a successful week of art and ocean science. Students learned all about whales and the ocean, built models of drones, wrote stories about whales and made collages of whale tails. We even saw a real whale skeleton courtesy of the New England Whale Center.
Look for more great collaborations this summer.
Who We Are...

From youth programs through teen years into adult, we encourage learning new skills to develop confidence, nurture creative expression, teach visual thinking and communication, and foster a sense of community in our studio and beyond. Our classes include subjects in all areas of visual arts, including fine arts, design and crafts. Check out our week-long summer programs for kids as well, and our evening classes for teens and adults.
