about Brookline Arts Center:
Classes are geared for children ages 2 to teen, and all classes run for nine sessions. The littlest artists (2 to 3) will enjoy working one on one with Mom or Dad in a class that incorporates art, singing, and creative movement.
Children ages 3 to 5 can choose from several classes that focus on developing an understanding of color, different materials, and arts and crafts.
5 to 11 year olds explore further artistic possibilities with drawing, painting, and pottery classes. All children are placed into age appropriate groups.
Prices for classes range from $180 to $235; materials are extra, and range from $10 to $40.
Don't fret about school or summer vacations. The Center offers classes for 6 to 16 year olds during the December and February breaks and during the summer. Choose from one- and two-week sessions. Class size is limited, so consider signing up early. Prices for vacation classes range from $200 to $300; materials are an extra $40.
If you think your child might like to have a birthday party here, you're in luck. A faculty member will put together a schedule of projects that spans two hours. These may include jewelry making, painting, and sculpture, among many possibilities. The faculty is very receptive to parent ideas and is willing to tailor a party to the children's ages and interests.
You may want to consider asking a couple of parents to stick around to help with younger children. Although there is an instructor to coordinate the activities, a few extra hands are always welcome.
Birthday parties can be scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. The cost of the party is $185 for ten children. Additional children (up to a max of 14) can be added for $12 each.
