Art in the House

Let's face it, once the holiday season is over, winter can be a bit of a drag. It's especially difficult if you are shut in your apartment with the kids on a cold, dreary afternoon after school.

If that sounds familiar, you might want to consider enrolling your kids in This Art in the HouseWinter 2012 session at the  The Old Stone House.

ART IN THE HOUSE at the Old Stone House is a unique after-school art program for ages 7-11 inspired by history. Beneath the magnificent gabled ceilings of the light-filled big room of the Old Stone House, we examine arts and crafts techniques from the past—both recent and distant—and use them as a starting point for our own fun and funky hands-on art activities. Includes painting, print-making and clay projects, with an emphasis on functional "takeaways" the students have created themselves, such as tricorn hats, weather vanes, greeting cards and drinking glasses.

On the last day of class we celebrate with an "art opening" for parents and friends.

Interested? Learn more about the program schedule and cost here. Hurry, because the program already began on Monday!
