At the studio!  – Love Lab Studio @ 26 Brackett Street, Portland Maine, adjacent to a beautiful city park and nearby playground. We are located in a mixed residential and commercial area, and usually, there is usually ample parking available but be mindful in the winter. We are located across from “good medicine” a space for healers and doctors, and we are right next door to the sweet new cafe “smalls”, and diagonal to the lovely Harbor View Park.

1. We wear masks at the studio, we are asking that all families consider wearing a KF94 or N95 mask for children if they haven’t already. Please do not come if you are sick, or think you are getting sick! If you have a question about this please ask Christina. Think of the CDC regulations, then with even more care. We do this for many reasons, and really appreciate you all helping us keep the community healthy right now. Also, if you miss because of sickness we will work hard to get you an art kit or make-up option if you let us know before the workshop.

2. Prior to starting class, each parent/guardian must sign our online forms that will arrive in your welcome email! Please bring a water bottle, a little sweater, and a cozy pair of slippers if you have them (socks are OK too and what we wear) in our studio during the fall and winter. Prior to starting class, each student must sign and fill out our student info sheet packet that we will email you before the workshop (including media form, release form, and other important info).

You will arrive into the bright studio usually with nice music playing, take off your shoes, find a cubby/hooks to store your things, wash your hands – and we have a project to get into right away! After that, we gather and circle up to go through our activity areas and project theme and then get to it! For grown-up with child workshops, we will often gather as a group before going to the different stations to work.
We look forward to working with you in the studio!

*Please note if your choice is full, we will be doing something called “open studio” with fun valentine making all set up. Times for that are: Friday 2.3 noon – 8pm (for 1st Friday!), Saturday 2.4, Friday 2.10 and Saturday 2.11 noon – 5. It’s first come first seated, with a sliding scale to participate.
