SCHEDULE AN INDIVIDUAL OR SMALL GROUP SESSION

Children choose an art or craft project and work at their own pace. They decide what they want to do, receive one-on-one attention and I provide the supplies. Parents can schedule sessions with their children's friends, in the same "pod".  I encourage parents and caregivers to join these sessions as well! Individual instruction costs $45 per hour per family. To book sessions at your convenience contact me at (781) 343-1250 or nicoledonson@comcast.net to set up a date and time. The times listed below are the time windows when you can set up an individual or small group class. They are not length of the class, you simply contact me and let me know when you want to meet and for how long.

I am fully vaccinated and for now, classes will be held outside and will follow CDC recommendations and safety guidelines. We will wear masks and practice social distancing. There is a large shady backyard at my studio building with trees and grass where several tables will be set up six feet apart. If the CDC changes its protocols and deems it safe to move indoors classes take place inside my air-conditioned art studio. 

If it rains classes will be held indoors or cancelled. I will contact parents to determine if they are comfortable with moving indoors. If most are uncomfortable, I will cancel class and a make up will be scheduled or I will give a refund for the day. 

Registration is flexible, sign up for the weeks and classes that interest you. The weekly program runs Monday through Friday starting July 5 through August 31. There is no program offered during the week of August 23rd through August 27th. You can receive a full refund if you notify me at least 72 hours before the class start date.
