Individual and Small Classes

Individual instruction held indoors and outdoors at your convenience! 

 Do an art or craft project of your choice and work at your own pace. We will wear masks and  practice social distancing. There is a vent in my studio that will be on at all times.

Children will receive one-on-one attention. They can choose from the selections below or another project tailor-made to their specific interests and needs. Children decide what they want to do, and I provide supplies and instruction. I encourage parents and caregivers to join these sessions as well!

To book an individual session at your convenience, contact me contact me at (781) 343-1250 or to set up a date and time. I am available on weekdays and weekends. 

Individual instruction at my studio costs $45 per hour and includes most art and craft supplies.  You can pay by Venmo @nicoledonson, personal check, cash or credit card. In some cases I will charge an additional fee for a given project, such as painting a t-shirt with fabric paints or making a clothes pin mirror.

Choose from a variety of projects. Paint a silk sun-catcher, paint a tote bag or hand sew a stuffed animal, pillow or bag. Learn to knit and make weavings from yarm. Paint with water-color and tempera paints and create collages with decorative papers and construction paper. Projects are tailored to meet children's interests.
