Youth, Tweens, Teens – Kids Classes and Art Camps
We love to introduce young people to the sheer joy of creating functional and decorative art—craft. Children and teens develop their ideas at their own pace in our supportive studio environment. We offer kids classes and art camps in our Hanover studios, where they learn concrete skills and techniques to make pottery, metal jewelry, metal sculpture, sewing, baskets, papier mache sculpture, and more.
Benefits of Craft Classes for Children & Teens
When children engage in the craft making process, they develop artistic skills, as well as problem solving, critical thinking and social skills. Many craft projects require the use of math skills, and children become articulate communicators as they learn to describe their ideas to the instructor so that the idea can be come reality.
Youngsters can take classes in all three of our studios. We offer after-school classes, and winter, spring, and summer vacation camps, where kids can fully engage in the process of making decorative and functional art, while enjoying each other’s company.
Every year we have students from all around the Upper Valley and beyond enrolled in our after-school classes and art camps. This helps build cross-community networks of young artists, and many children return to summer camp year after year to find friends they remember from the year before.
