Nicole's Art Spot -- Art and Crafts Classes & Summer Program
Nicole’s Art Spot is a fun art and craft education program taught by Nicole Donson that offers classes in an array of art and craft media ranging from silk painting, sewing, weaving, wet felting and knitting to painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture and mosaics. Small class sizes of mixed ages permit each child to get the attention they need while gaining new artistic skills in a nurturing environment. Classes encourage individual creativity, exploration, experimentation and self-discovery, with a special focus on the fiber arts. Children can delve into art and craft media that interests them the most and projects are tailored to meet their interests. Summer classes are held weekly in the mornings from 9 am – noon and afternoons from 1 – 4 pm. Children can select from a range of unique classes that include Fabric Painting, Fashion Design, Yarn Felt and Fabric, Art and Crafts Smorgasbord, Sculpture, Trash Art and Clay, Modern Art Adventure and Animal Art and Crafts. Mixed age groups permit children to learn from each other, offer help and work together. Students who enroll in morning and afternoon summer classes can have lunch with outside or in the art studio. There is a large backyard at my studio building with trees and grass and a picnic table where children can play and eat lunch. Nicole’s Art Spot also hosts birthday parties, offers individual and small group instruction and drop-in hours.
