For over 25 years Deborah Bazer and Lahri Bond have been teaching art classes to children and adults in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts. Our week-long, themed, summer art programs have combined the joy of making of art in a focused classroom setting, with the pleasure of creating art, telling stories and playing in some very beautiful woods, parks and other outdoor locations.
Storytelling is a very important part of all our classes. It enriches the class themes, inspires the art, feeds the mind and nourishes the spirit.
Our classes are limited to between 10-12 children, in line with our philosophy of keeping classes small for more individualized attention. This does mean early registration is advisable. We are also offering opportunities for young art assistants. More information can be found on the Registration page.
So, come and join us this summer for art making, storytelling, noncompetitive games and fun on the beautiful Hampshire College campus.
