Our popular Summer Arts program for children returns, now from our new home in the Jonathan Maynard Building on Framingham Centre Common! We’re celebrating our fresh start in a newly renovated building with our summer’s theme “Going Places,” an artistic exploration of motion, travel, and things on the go!
Our half-day program, designed specifically for kindergarteners, allows students to explore and learn about many of the fun artists’ materials in our studios—from pastels to colored pencils, watercolor to air-dry clay. These budding artists will be taught by an experienced early education art teacher with the help of a Studio Assistant. And, just like the older students, our kindergarteners will each create their own portfolio, and celebrate their artwork with a Friday student exhibition.
($) indicates optional program with additional fee. Please note: Supervised lunch is NOT available to
students enrolled in half-day only programs.

About Grade Levels: We understand that children vary in their development widely from grade to grade, and offer Summer Arts classes open to a two-grade range so parents/guardians may select which class best aligns with their child’s developmental level. This year, parents/guardians may choose either the grade their child completed in June 2017, or the grade their child will enter in September 2017. If your child completed Kindergarten in June of 2017, and you think they will be better suited in a Grade 1-2 class, please see our Summer Arts (Grades 1-8) page.
