Summer Program 2018

We are excited to offer our Summer Program to a wider age range this year, with kids up to 12 years old welcome! Our morning sections will be for ages 5 – 7, and our afternoon sections will include ages 8 – 12.

The 2018 Summer Program at Muckykids Art Studio is a drop-off program that offers kids aged 5 – 12 a unique opportunity to indulge, explore, and expand their love of art and craft. For three mornings or afternoons a week over 6 summer weeks in June, July and August, kids can participate in intensive, hands-on art workshops diving into a variety of weekly themes.

The program is divided by age group; the 9:00 a.m. to noon section for 5 – 7 year olds, and the 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm section for 8 – 12 year olds . Registration is flexible; sign up for the particular weeks that interest you, or sign up for all 6 weeks for a discounted tuition. The program runs on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, from June 25th to August 15th. (There is no camp offered during the weeks of July 2nd and July 9th.)

Week 1 (Monday June 25 – Wednesday June 27) – Bookmaking
Bookmaking is an ancient craft that we will explore, while adding our own twists. We will play with sewn bindings, tape bindings, twig bindings, and even no binding (accordion fold and scrolls)! Collage, stamping, fabric and repurposed pages will fill these one-of-a-kind creations, some so tiny that they can fit into a matchbox.

Section 2: Ages 8-12, M-W afternoons 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 pm, fee $195
