Camps & Classes for Elementary and Middle School Students
Welcome to Squirrelly! We are excited to welcome your young artists and makers for a new collection of after-school art classes. Unless otherwise indicated, all of the classes listed below are geared for ages 6-12, with room to move on either end. Normally, all classes take place at Wunderkind, at 3315 NE 55th Street. At this time, we are taking things week by week! Some classes are being offered ALL OUTSIDE (with safety protocols to keep all healthy) and others will be offered via Zoom. We will continue to update our plans below. Thank you for your patience and stay healthy!
Please stay tuned! We are taking a short break, but will be offering more outdoor classes in early spring.
Happy New Year!
ALL OUTDOOR Surprise Holiday Gift Making!
We're moving our favorite classes of the year OUTDOORS! If preschoolers can do it, then we can too ;) We hope you will bundle up and join us for a session or two of Outdoor Holiday Gift Making. Kids will try artforms from jewelry making and block printing to watercolor painting and candle making, and make lovely gifts for family and friends, wrapped and ready to give. The young artists will love the projects, and be so proud to have their own surprises to give. And, you will love the gifts! (Feel free to email with questions or scholarship requests.)
Choose from the following Holiday Gift Making series and classes:

These classes will be offered ALL OUTSIDE on the patio at Wunderkind, and we will follow strict safety protocols (including mask wearing, frequent hand-washing, and taking temperatures each day upon arrival. Click here for more details.) Note: While we will also strive for 6 foot physical distancing, kids will be moving from place to place, and they may not be seated and separate at all times. It's nearly impossible for them to not interact with each other. We WILL be outdoors and wearing masks at all times to protect against the spread of germs. Please email if you would like to talk about health and safety concerns, or about scholarships too. Thank you! Click here to register!
STRING ART: TRY THIS AT HOME!
While we wait for a time when we can all create art together again, check out this How-To video for a fun art project you can try at home, with materials you likely already have. Send a photo of your finished project to and we'll add it to our gallery!
MAKE YOUR OWN EASY AND FUN FACE MASK!
Check out this video for two super easy face masks you can make at home. One, with just a paper towel, rubber bands, and a stapler. The other, with a pillowcase or cloth napkin, rubber bands, and a needle and thread -- super easy sewing! Then, get creative with Sharpies or embroidery to make it look awesome. Show us your unique mask when you're done - share on Instagram at #kidsmakemasks!
* 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!
