Latest news and announcements
The schedule for the 2022-2023 academic year is finally revealed! We worked hard trying to reflect the dynamics we observed last year as well as your feedback to continue making our classes more tailored to our changing needs as our community has grown — which cannot make us happier! We also felt the need to diversify some age groups by their interests, skills, artistic goals, and social needs. Our schedule has been restructured so our 7+ year old students have more than one choice of classes. We hope that new Monday evening class will be very helpful to our busy pre-teen and teen students. Even though our studio has grown on the older side, we still have a great place for the new aspiring artists as young as 5. Check out our new classes and schedule for more details.
We will continue structuring our year by monthly sessions. It has proven to be convenient in many ways for us and our students. Our older students can also take advantage of a drop-in format. Although the drop-in option has its obvious downsides (higher rate, necessity to “book” a spot prior to coming to the class) it might help some of our friends navigate their busy middle and high school activities. We do not offer a drop-in option for students in Young Artists and Art Foundations as we believe getting used to our routine and social group is very important for artistic and personal development. Please, use our online calendar to see the dates and class times available.
We hope you will find our new schedule more flexible and more inclusive at the same time. Let’s begin with our most populated classes for pre-teens and teenage students. Two former Studio Art classes evolved to become three: Junior Portfolio (Sunday, 10-13 y.o.), Studio Art II (Monday 11+ y.o.), and Portfolio Prep (Saturday, 12+* y.o.). You might notice that classes overlap age wise now. Promise, it was not done to confuse you, but to give you more options. Please, get familiar with the class descriptions and reach out with questions or for recommendation on placement prior to registering. We will find the class which works best for you, whether you are looking expand your, need to work on your art portfolio, or just want to enjoy making art in the same group as your friend.
At the same time, have made room for our younger students, who are ready to advance into a more challenging class yet still need to be surrounded by by peers in their age group. Once again, there are some age group overlaps between our younger groups: Young Artists (Sunday, 5-8 y.o.), Art Foundations (Saturdays, 7*-9 y.o.), and Studio Art I (Saturday, 9*-12 y.o.).
The yellow asterisk* by the age number indicates a younger student with at least one year of experience in our studio.
