Classes for Children

Sign up for fall classes outside and ZOOM classes!

Making art should be fun! I am sensitive to children’s feelings and needs and encourage them to focus on the fun process of making art versus making creations that are “perfect.” It takes time to build skills, as children enjoy making art, over time they feel more confident and proud of their creations. I love offering mixed age group classes where kids can help each other and create art and crafts they can use and show off. 

Individual instruction held outdoors this fall! 

Kids can do an art or craft project of their choice outside and work at their own pace on a table outside my art studio building or I can come to your home and work with you outside. I will wear a n95 mask and we will practice social distancing. If you would like me to come to your home I will bring all the supplies we need and will disinfect them. 

Individual sessions for children held outside

They will receive one-on-one attention. They can choose from the selections below or another project tailor-made to their specific interests and needs. Children decide what they want to do, and I provide supplies and instruction. I encourage parents and caregivers to join these sessions as well!

To book an individual session at your convenience, contact me contact me at (781) 343-1250 or nicoledonson@comcast.net to set up a date and time. Individual instruction at my studio costs $30 per hour and includes most art and craft supplies. In some cases I will charge an additional fee for a given project, such as painting a t-shirt with fabric paints or making a clothes pin mirror. Visits to your home cost $50 per hour.
