Vacation Program

  • Tuesday, December 30, 2014
  • 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
  • Designed for ages 6 to 12

These are books we admired on different 2014 Best Books for young reader lists. Each book suggests something interesting to explore. Select two project workshops. We will read part of the book and explore the world it describes in artful experiments. Our suggestion: choose one topic that you know you will like, and then one that seems completely new.

The projects but not the books are included in the tuition. Any of these books might be a great gift.

Among the many we viewed, these are some we've chosen to work with (in no particular rank order):
Aviary Wonders Inc. Spring Catalog and Instruction Manual by Kate Samworth; Quest by Aaron Becker; The Scraps Book: Notes from a Colorful Life by Lois Ehlert; Hi, Koo! A Year of Seasons by Jon J. Muth.
