With fingers crossed, we are planning a fun, educational and creative 2021! All the usual art suspects–clay, collage, painting, drawing–will be incorporated into two 10-week workshops. With four extra weeks, we can dive more deeply into our subjects and work closely with each student. Additionally, this extra time will give us more make-up options, should we find the need to close. Winner decision all around!

January 4th to March 12th, Winter 2021 Workshop: Return to Planet Earth!

14 years ago, Planet Earth, the awe-inspiring nature documentary was produced. The episodes amazed us then and continue to teach countless youngsters about Earth and all her many wonders. Islands, Mountains, Jungles, Deserts, Grasslands–even Cities–play home to the most fantastic animals. Let’s go back and explore Planet Earth together!

*** in observance of MLK Day, no class on Monday, January 18th–this missed class is reflected in the workshop price***

March 22nd to May 28th, Spring 2021 Workshop: Baby Animals!

Spring is coming, and with it arrives some of nature’s most-vibrant colors–flowers emerge and bloom, birds molt and grow their multi-hued feathers and iridescent insects sparkle in the sun! It will also, hopefully, be a time for us to once again re-group and celebrate together…a rebirth, so to speak. So let’s take a look at the most adorable of them all–Earth’s colorful, wonderful, cuddly baby animals!

Walden Pond COVID Policy

Due to the unpredictability of the virus, we are unable to offer refunds to classes, already in progress, that are interrupted due to an infection or outbreak. We will make every effort possible to make-up lost classes. Our small class sizes give us ample flexibility to accommodate those looking for make-up opportunities. Full refunds will be given, however, for cancellations requested before the start of a workshop.

Safety, of your children and our staff, is our priority. We wear masks, scan temperatures, thoroughly clean and disinfect the school, practice social distancing and emphasize personal hygiene. Additionally, we will utilize our outside garden as much as possible.

Unfortunately, our supervised lunch, normally held from 11:30 to 12:30, is temporarily on hold until the COVID situation settles down. We look forward to re-starting this fun together time as soon as safely possible.
