Goodbye Summer and Hello Fall!

As our summer session draws to a close here at The Messy Artist, we wanted to take a look back over the season and peek ahead to fall.

We had a wonderful time making art with our students all summer long in our caregiver and me classes (ages 18 months-5 years), drop off Mini-camps (age 3-5 years) and Fine Art camps (grades 1-8).

Some of the projects from the summer that we featured on our blog were: salt painting, bean mosaics, pool painting, plaster sculptures, and spherical paintings. Next week we will be featuring Claymation, which always caps off our summer session. The students are working hard on their videos, and we will post links to them next week! Throughout the summer (and all year) we also feature lots of photos on our facebook page of daily activities.

Looking ahead to Fall, we have lots of exciting new projects as well as our well-loved favorite classes. Some of our classes are already filled, and we have added new opportunities for both kids and adult students.

  • home schooling class options for students age 3 years up to middle school
  • evening class option for our Picassos class
  • a new section of Art Foundations for 6th-8th graders
  • adult workshops on select Friday nights
  • two weeks of Mini-camp and Drop-in and Play in early September

In some other news, as we are growing here at The Messy Artist, we are creating a special program for our older students. Called “Studio 356”, this branch will focus exclusively on fine art for older kids and will feature specialized, in-depth instruction and open studio time. More details about this will be coming soon, and we are very excited about it.

Finally, we are looking forward to some off site opportunities this Fall. We are leading corporate events in NYC and even doing a pumpkin carving workshop the weekend before Halloween. We are also in the process of working out details for coming into local schools and offering enrichment classes; we still have some room in our schedule so please reach out to us if you would be interested in this for your pre-k or up students.

Thank you all for a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you in September!

The curriculum is inspired and guided by Donna’s teaching experience and research in child development, as well as her passion for art. At The Messy Artist, art lessons for kids entertain and enrich their brains, bodies, and hearts.
