It’s that fun time again!

Crafts + Art: individual and collaborative creative projects
Snack + creative play
Lunch + outdoor play + projects
Afternoon in-breath: rest + choice: books/play or craft, movement + more art projects!

Some of our values
* The whole child: social & emotional development and inclusion within a caring community
* The child as communicator: language development through participation, listening, poetry
* The child as co-creator: project based, hands on, and individual learning
* The child as artist: centering arts, creativity + imagination
* The child as informed citizen: community member, global & ecological participant

Children: We welcome and celebrate a mixed age group of children ages 5 – 9. We can accommodate children who are a tad younger or a tad older, if they are the right temperament to be with the group! We find some 4 years olds are fine with a full day, and others not! Please inquire.

Teachers: Our collaborative teaching team, includes skilled and caring lead teachers. We are a unique team with each of us having different, skilled and certified training and experience in: Columbia Teachers College Reading and Writing Program, Reggio Emilia, Public School, Waldorf Schools, and Art pedagogy of all kinds and more. We also have caring, skilled art assistants and look forward to a visiting artist for our winter camp!

Our space
Our space is bright and newly renovated, known as Love Lab Studio. The design is thoughtfully curated for the needs of the children. We are located in a mixed residential and retail neighborhood in the West End of Portland, at the edge of a beautiful park and playground and a nearby urban food forest.

Some details
Things helpful to bring: For children please bring a water bottle (we have cups for water too), a little sweater, and a cozy pair of slippers if you have them (socks are OK too) to wear in our studio. Children will also need to bring a little snack for the morning and a lunch for this camp! Prior to starting class, each student caregiver must sign and return our student info sheet packet (includes media form, release form, and other important info). In the event of snow cancellation don’t worry, we will have additional make-up and other options for each family. rice includes all materials!

We can’t wait to get in the studio and outside with you all! This will be a fun week!
