Summer 2019!

Ages 7 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 are pleased to introduce an intensive drawing and painting weeklong program for 13-18 year old students starting July 29th then the following two weeks August 5-16 is for all ages 7-18. See below to register now!

We have 2 large size rooms with many tables and easels to maximize our workspace. Our front large studio is our main room, along with what we like to refer to as our 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.


Intensive Drawing and Painting ages 13-18 years old
July 29- August 2
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 instructors are Michelle Muhlbaum – Master Degree of Fine Arts from Tufts University and Hailey Peirce – Bachelor of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art.

Creative Summer Arts ages 7-18 years old
August 5-9
August 12-16
Drawing is taught as a foundation but all mediums are blended together here, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, embroidery, knitting and mixed media.

We encourage exploration and autonomy, teaching the importance of patience and technique and allowing your child to find their medium of choice.

Weather permitting, we will spend time outside both making art and enjoying the sunshine at local parks.

Classes are led by Michelle along with Hailey, our fiber teacher who can weave, indigo dye, embroider and make small knitting and hand-sewing projects with the kids.
