Our Signature Curriculum

This is our Best of Boston program that explores varied themes in the art world and introduces an array of materials to artists of all levels.

Art History Theme for Winter Semester: Arts of Africa, Australia & South America

Teachers: Diana | Susannah

Our youngest students are exposed to art history stories in the beginning of each class with knowledge tested weekly. Then each week they get introduced to a new material, be it clay, watercolor, tempera paints or collage.

They perfect these materials over time, both getting more comfortable with those and learning to develop their imaginations.

The last 10-15 minutes of each class is devoted to FREE draw (as soon as we see that our little artists are getting tired, we change up the tasks).

Each semester ends with a field trip to an art museum to see artworks en situe

Art History Theme for Winter Semester: Arts of Africa, Australia & South America

Teachers: Diana | Susannah

This age group also has an option to sign up for our Sculpture Intensive to go along with the Signature Curriculum at 20% off, or instead of it.

As kids get older, they pay more attention to details and though we vary materials in our curriculum, we're very mindful of every student's unique pace and want them to take their projects to completion.

Some projects take one week, others - can take up to three.

We use clay, watercolor, tempera paint among other materials.

Every semester we study an overarching art history theme that gets subdivided monthly, and each semester ends with a trip to an art museum, to see the artworks in real life.
