Summer 2024

Announcing the opening of the registration for
Kids Art and Nature Summer 2024!


Making Art Outside

Once again, we are so excited to be making art together

in the enchanted fields and woods of Hampshire College!

Our art programs are held entirely outside, except for

bathroom use. We meet and work under the shady and

cool solar canopy next to The Arts Barn, so even in wet

weather we can continue making art outside. With the

beautiful campus and woods at our toe-tips, we find

plenty of wonderful places to make art, play games

and run wild!    


Class Size

Our classes are limited to 10 -12 children, in line with our philosophy of keeping classes small for more

individualized attention. This does mean early registration is advisable.  

Inclusion and Community

When we come together in a class we form, for a short time, a community. In this community we welcome, respect and honor each child’s identity, race, gender identity, cultural background, heritage and personal choices. We also foster a sense of community with the natural world and teach respect and caring for all living things, trees, plants, insects, animals and humans.



Storytelling is an integral part of our teaching and learning philosophies. During the course of each week, we tell stories and tales from a wide range of cultures and traditions. We also encourage our students to recount or make up their own stories that reflect their unique perspective of our beautiful world.



We have a few partial scholarships available each session. We try to be accessible to all families.
Please email to let us know the amount you need, and which classes you are interested
 in. Unfortunately, we need to limit it to one partial scholarship per child. 
Please do not sign up for classes until you have heard back from usWe will try our best to accommodate your request.   Email:


Health Protocols

We will follow Health and Covid safety and cleaning protocol as recommended by the CDC at the time the camps are in session, including masking, distancing, and sanitizing if required. Our goal is to keep everyone healthy, happy and safe while making art together.


We are looking forward to sharing this summer with your children, with mud on our feet and paint on our hands, under the cool canopy and shady woods of Hampshire College campus.  
With Gratitude,
Deborah and Lahri
