After- school for Elementary- Aged Students

Elementary aged after-schoolers (students 7- 11 years old) have the exciting opportunity to attend our weekly outdoor, covid- conscious, artist- led workshops. The artist-led workshops include dye-making, painting, screen printing, drawing, clay, woodworking, foraging, wildcrafting, zines, comics, photography and more! The workshops change weekly and registration for each week is required. There is also an option to sign up for all weeks of after-school workshops at a discounted rate. We offer an organic snack.

After- school for Preschool- Aged Students

The preschoolers (ages 3- 6 with some exceptions starting at 30 months) have access to our Montessori- inspired classroom and our large outdoor play area. We are typically child-led and play- focused in the afternoons, with the occasional art/science project or games. Often the artist leading the elementary aged students workshop will give us fun suggestions for age- appropriate adaptations of their workshop. We offer an organic snack.
