Nicole’s Art Spot Summer Program offers children week-long in-person intensive arts and crafts classes and workshops. Class sizes are limited to 6 kids. Parents can also schedule individual or small group-classes.
Registration is flexible, sign up for the weeks and classes that interest you. The weekly program runs Monday through Friday starting July 11 through September 2. There is no program offered during the week of August 22rd through August 26th. You can receive a full refund if you notify me at least 72 hours before the class start date. All art and crafts materials are included in the cost of the class.
Children choose an art or craft project and work at their own pace. They decide what they want to do, receive one-on-one attention and I provide the supplies. Parents can schedule sessions with their children's friends, in the same "pod". I encourage parents and caregivers to join these sessions as well! Individual instruction costs $45 per hour per family. To book sessions at your convenience contact me at (781) 343-1250 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a date and time. The times listed below are the time windows when you can set up an individual or small group class. They are not length of the class, you simply contact me and let me know when you want to meet and for how long.
I am fully vaccinated and for now, classes will be held outside and will follow CDC recommendations and safety guidelines. We will wear masks and practice social distancing. There is a large shady backyard at my studio building with trees and grass where several tables will be set up six feet apart. If the CDC changes its protocols and deems it safe to move indoors classes take place inside my air-conditioned art studio.
If it rains classes will be held indoors or cancelled. I will contact parents to determine if they are comfortable with moving indoors. If most are uncomfortable, I will cancel class and a make up will be scheduled or I will give a refund for the day.

Calling all Eric Carle fans! Create artwork inspired by your favorite children’s books such as Where the Wild Things Are, Rainbow Fish, Pete the Cat, Monsters Love Trouble, Leaf Man, Elmer the Elephant, Harold and the Purple Crayon, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and more. We’ll paint textures on paper and make collages as Eric Carle did, paint on pre-cut paper leaves and use a watercolor resist technique to make a leaf man, and use colored tissue paper to decorate rainbow fish and Elmer the elephant. We'll create monsters like the wild things and collages with dots and drawings using a purple crayon. Each day we'll explore a two books, read each aloud and enjoy art projects inspired by that book.
