    This winter the Studio was overrun with gnomes and the result was pure magic.  The good news is they're baaaaacccckkk.  We'll each make our own family of art inspired gnomes.  A new gnome a day and then we'll help the gnomes build some of their favorite projects as well.  For example, they love to make nifty birdhouses for their feathery friends, or design and decorate family welcome signs to hang by the front door at home.  

    gnomesAnd speaking of doors, gnomes need sparkly, magical gateways to their secret worlds, we'll build those too.  It's a week of drawing, painting, hammering, building, and spending the week "chillin' with our gnomies."

    Extended day option is a flexible program from 3:30 - 6:00. Children will relax in the Studio to watch a movie, play games or just chill out. No need to register. Just tell the Studio team at drop-off if your child will be staying that day. You will be billed at the end of the week $25.00 per afternoon of extended day.

    Really!?  We're still stuck on this desert isle?  Well we finally figured out we're off the coast of Australia.  Join us for a week that will be chockers with art that celebrates the land down under.  We'll make and decorate our own boomerangs, paint and furiffy beautiful koalas, try our hands at print-making with kiwis, and create life-size kangaroos.  And then there are all those great island games we play to pass the time while stranded (water balloon toss, the limbo, kids cricket, and the Australia week quiz show!).

    pottery wheel

    Ages:  9+
     Fee: $375.00
    Time: Noon - 6:00
    (Scheduled to follow Grade Expectations if your child is attending)

    We're looking forward to a fantastic week designed for Winchester Tweens. Studying is important but having creative, non-competitive activities to do with friends is equally important. We'll talk about ways to use art, yoga, mindfulness, and creativity to de-stress and enhance joy. Always wanted to try your hand at the pottery wheel? Now's your chance. Wonder what it would be like to design and paint a reclaimed window to hang in your room? We'll do it! Ever tried refinishing a piece of furniture and embellishing it with your own special flare. On it! Love yoga or wanting to try it out for the first time? We'll namaste away with Sharon Marama! And by the way, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY in any of this. 

    Here’s a look at the week:

    Monday: Clay sculpture and the pottery wheel
    Tuesday: Reclaimed windows and furniture painting/refinishing
    Wednesday: Ceramics glazing and prep for firing. Tee shirt design, silk screening
    Thursday: Yoga and self-care with Sharon Marama, includes candle making and more
    Friday: Yoga and empowerment workshop with Sharon Marama includes journal making, writing a manifesto and more!

    We've timed this program to begin right after Winchester's McCall Grade Expectations program.  Bring your lunch (or grab a lunch on your way) and join us in the studio for five great days of creating, connecting, and chilling.  Our counselors are three Winchester High Graduates in their second year of college. They, and the Studio director, look forward to chilling and creating right along with you!  

    Sign up early as space will be limited.
