Fall 2019 Classes
Guarantee a great start to the school year, and register now for Squirrelly's fall after-school art classes! Pick and choose awesome art experiences from silk marbling and Seattle skyline collages to Surprise Holiday Gift Making. Hope to see you soon!
This special project, inspired by Ballard artist, Ameen Dhillon, introduces kids to the magic of collage. We first create a tissue paper "firework" collage background, then design and add all of the amazing buildings of the Seattle skyline. This 24"x36" canvas masterpiece will become a family favorite. $110
(Optional: Families may order custom mugs and notecard sets featuring their child's skyline. These make amazing holiday gifts too!)

A Squirrelly favorite! Kids will spend three weeks learning new art forms (ceramics, painting, and much more, shhh!) and create four or five unique and special holiday gifts, wrapped and ready to give to all the loved ones in their family! $150

We'll spend the morning creating some fabulous and all original holiday ornaments, fun for decorating or giving as gifts! We'll work until 11:30 then break for lunch, so feel free to bring a lunch and stay until 12:15pm, or stay for the afternoon and join us for Holiday Block Printing too! $55.
Monday, 11/25, 12:00-3:00pm
Bring a lunch to enjoy together, then we'll get rolling at 12:30pm to create a printing factory! We'll carve designs from rubber blocks, and then print holiday cards, some lovely framed artwork, and a holiday shopping tote bag. $55.
Tuesday, 11/26, 9:00am-3:00pm
Countdown the days this holiday season with your very own, hand-made Advent Calendar (for Christmas) or 8 Nights of Light Hanukkah Calendar! (And, if you don't celebrate either, this would be an amazing gift for a neighbor or friend!) We'll need all day, as we build this sturdy yet beautiful calendar (to be used for years to come!) using wood, drills, glue guns, paint, ribbons, glitter and more! Then, we'll make as many little treasures as we can to fill all the boxes, from magnets to jewelry to candy and more. Please bring a lunch! $115
* If you are interested in a camp or class that is already full, please feel free to email to be added to our waitlist, and be notified if new classes open up. Thank you!
