Camps for School Days Off
Summer, Winter, Spring Breaks, Columbus days .... if kids aren't in school we probably are having an art camp (Usually based on the CPS schedule ~but we can customize).
Imagine making fun art all day. Never more than 12 students per teacher means individual attention from professional teaching/artists. Fun, Cooperative & Inspiring! learn Art history and terminology while practicing important skills.
Bring a lunch and we will make all kinds of art for 4 hours/day ~ 10 AM to 2 PM.
One day of camp only $40
Three days for $110
After four days they are all $ 35/day
Before and after care can be available.
Custom & Scheduled
THURSDAY NIGHT MASK MAKING
Taught at three progressive levels these on going classes have an open enrollment, start any time!
People come from around the world to study with Jeff Semmerling. To make it easier he offers a quarterly weekend workshop in "Shaping Leather Masks" and every summer follows that with a weekend workshop in advanced leather sculpting and stitching....
After school and some Saturday classes are offered mostly in 8 week sessions.
We have a broad ranging curriculum of art and can custom design a class for any age group. We can create a regular class not offered in our schedule for any group of 6 to Adult ~ in our space or yours. (See our “Visiting Artist Residencies”.)
Let us make the perfect art experience for you. We publish our schedule one quarter in advance so we can add a class if you have 4 or more artists. Always flexible just give us a call. Art making is a great way to spend time together!
