All Hands Allston’s Summer Sessions are especially designed for children who love crafting projects and making art. We can be very flexible in our scheduling because our cohort size is small (no more than six children) and we do not share our space.
Mornings will usually start with an extended project lasting an hour and a half to two hours. Often this first part of the day will be spent doing woodworking. The morning may also include a short art activity or game before or after the long session. Late morning, around eleven o’clock, we will get ready and head to a neighborhood park about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the studio. The park we plan to most often use is quiet and shady. It offers open space, playground equipment and a sprinkler. At the park we’ll have a relaxed recess and lunch, including a chance to cool off in the water. Some days we may choose to go to different parks in the neighborhood. Upon returning to the studio everyone will have a chance to change into dry clothing and get ready for the afternoon. By about 12:30 we’ll start the afternoon art making. Most afternoons will be broken into two or more project sessions. Depending on the week’s theme, projects could include printmaking, sculpting with found and recycled objects, painting, book making, weaving, felting, sewing, dying, mixing slime, making stop action animations and many other possibilities. In the middle of the afternoon we’ll take a brief popsicle break. At about 3:15 everyone will help clean up and get ready for pick up time at 3:30. On Friday afternoons parents and guardians are invited to arrive twenty minutes early, at 3:10pm, to enjoy a display of everyone’s artwork!
Camp is $510.00 per week - all materials are included.
