Summer 2022

Ages 8 to 17

The House of Colors is a hub of creativity all year long, and it continues with our popular summer program! Our weeklong classes run everyday from 9-4 pm.

We have 2 large size rooms with many tables and easels to maximize our workspace. Our front large studio is our main room, and we refer to our back room as the Art lounge.

The Art Lounge has a workspace as well as a kitchenette area with couches and beanbags for the kids to hang out. We are air conditioned for those hot days and provide afternoon snacks! All we ask is you send the student with a bagged lunch.


Weeklong Drawing and Painting Intensive ages 13-17 years old
July 25- July 29
This is program designed specifically for middle school and high school students. The classes concentrate on realistic life drawing and painting with some work directly from the imagination.

The focus is on understanding of composition, line, color and mastering different kinds of painting techniques.

We believe in learning from the study of life, but fully support working from original ideas. There is an emphasis on creating professionally developed portfolio pieces for the student’s future.

The instructor is Michelle Muhlbaum – Master Degree of Fine Arts from Tufts University

Drawing is taught as a foundation but all mediums are blended together here, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, embroidery, crochet, and mixed media. Our assistant teachers make it fun. Hannah, will be a graduate from our school this year and is a great painter. Rosie, our fashion designer will be helping out with sewing projects on our sewing machines! Sophie will lead crochet workshops!
