Summer 2018 Education Programs

We’re already planning ahead for summertime, and another season of great educational programs at the Armory!  Once again, we’ll offer a variety of programming for different ages.

In July, the Somerville Arts Council returns with their popular 3-week Musical Theater Program for ages 8-13; sign up directly with SAC!

Also in July, we’re teaming up with EarthwiseAware to run a NEW one-week, half-day program called Closer to Nature.  Participants will explore and enjoy the natural world through storytelling, nature & naturalist walks, sketching & journaling, art, and science.

In August, we’ll run three separate weeks of our popular Arts Discovery Week program for kids ages 5-10.  Sign up for one or all, or for individual sessions within the week; it’s a sampler of lots of fun, creative, and sometimes crazy art projects.

For slightly older kids (11-16), Visual Arts Week offers a similar chance to explore lots of artistic mediums throughout one week in August.

Also for 11-16 year olds, Youth Arts Arise is our FREE one-week program exploring two artistic disciplines in depth: mornings focus on one topic all week, and afternoons on another.

Sign-up for all of the summer programs run by the Armory will open on March 15.  Check back then, or email to join our mailing list and be notified when it opens!

Weather update 2/9/2017

Update as we watch the snow fall: the Armory building and Cafe are open, but most events have cancelled for today (Expressive Explorers, Swordfighting class, Zumba, Ballet/tap, More to Love Yoga, West Coast Swing, and Pub Sing).

Since there are no evening events, the Cafe will close at 6 today.

Stay warm, stay safe, and see you again soon!

Due to the predicted extreme cold temperatures, the performance tonight by The Proper Ladies has been postponed until tomorrow,  Sunday Feb 14, at 2:30pm.

All other events today including the Winter Farmers’ Market are expected to run as planned.  (Fingers crossed!)
