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.

We are super excited!
We are gearing up for our biggest event of the year…buoy painting! Come help us prime buoys white so that we are all ready for the kids and families to come paint them beautiful in December. It’s easy and fun, and you might be the lucky winner of this year’s Birthday Party giveaway raffle—our way of saying thank you to everyone who can come help for an hour or two.
