::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

The Create Everyday Classroom Summer ART Camps are Monday through Friday, 9am - 1pm, with an eight student capacity. Within each week, ages can range from 4  to 10+ years (depending on your child's comfort level working in the midst of younger students).  Because of small class sizes, variations on lessons are easily provided when taking into consideration age, interest, and skill.

Each camp is $295 per week.  A non refundable $150 deposit secures your child's seat with a balance of $145 due the Monday of summer camp week.  Seat reservations may be made via apple pay, venmo or zelle.

Students come prepared with their own mid morning snack, water bottle and lunch. We have daily picnics on the MCAD campus or in the Mia courtyard (weather permitting).

In years past, we have always visited the museum (Mia) with sketchbooks on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Each camp's curriculum has determined our study there.  If Mia's operating hours return to what they were pre-pandemic, we will follow this tradition.  

Regarding the pandemic and ever-changing state of affairs: If we are still under restricted orders this summer, the first four students to register will be given priority seats in each camp.  Mask wearing inside the building and classroom will be mandatory.

You can take a peek into Summer ART Camps at The Create Everyday Classroom by visiting + viewing these slideshows.

Keith Haring artist study

One of our traditions over the winter break is to read the most noteworthy children's books that were published over the course of the year.  


The book, Drawing on Walls: A Story of Keith Haring, written by Matthew Burgess and illustrated by Josh Cochran would have been one of these books.


In the absence of our ability to meet in the classroom this year, I have put together a short art lesson, good for the entire family.




I am slowly but surely adding free tutorials to this you tube playlist.  Visit THIS LINK to view more.

I am also in the midst of having single session virtual classes available for the cost of $10 each.

You can preview these classes HERE.  Payments accepted via venmo.  Email me at
