Summer Session of Hooten-Art Tuesdays at 3:15 (18 month-4 with caregivers) and 4:15 (4-6 with or with-out caregivers) begins June 13th. No class July 4th. Class ends July 25th.

6 week session $170, siblings $100.

This summer we will paint with melting ice, create spin art with seashells, and engineer driftwood mobiles. We will experiment with fresh flowers and herbs to concoct perfume and play potions. If you value freedom to explore, open ended materials, and intriguing art invitations that take inspiration from science and nature, then this is the perfect class for your child. Taking a process-based approach, we will experiment with unexpected materials while letting projects develop organically according to the children's interests. Your little one is kept engaged by a new individual project each week as well as collaborative work. The importance of creating and communicating with one another is encouraged while respecting each child's autonomy and decision making.

In Hannah's class the child is free to create, explore materials, and make her own decisions in a nurturing environment. The 4:15 class explores some more advanced crafty projects.
