Woodwork Wonders- Week 5 is FULL!

Ignite your imagination this summer at Annisquam Arts!
Seven weeklong workshops reveal the diverse traditions of art around the world. This Cape Ann summer studio is the perfect setting for your child to express and explore their creativity.

Developed by artist and educator Dawn Southworth, Annisquam Arts tips off its 30th season by offering a variety of workshops for young artists. Conducted at Dawn’s open and professional home studio on Goose Cove, we have easy access to Gloucester’s cultural center and Cape Ann’s most scenic spots. The entire program runs for seven weeks, June 24- August 8, 2024 with new courses each week.

Young Artists’ Summer Studio Workshops run Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm for ages 6-14. We’ll have a blast engaging with a wide range of materials and artistic techniques in a multi-sensory studio environment. Small class sizes and individual instruction allow for all levels of ability to be nurtured. All classes are led by Dawn.

Testimonial: My daughter Maggie (Age 8), had an amazing week at Annisquam Art Camp.  She completed numerous projects and brought them home with pride.  I really couldn’t believe the quality and uniqueness of each project.  The theme of the week was sewing and some of the projects were a pillow, bag, and teddy bear.  The owner, Dawn, is so creative and good with the kids.  My daughter enjoyed everything from the art to the beach excursion to the dairy free ice cream. When I picked her up she would say, “You’re here already!”  My daughter has done many art camps, ranging from small town art studios to big city art museums and this has been both of our favorites.
