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 firstname.lastname@example.org to join our mailing list and be notified when it opens!
We’re closing Thursday 1/4/2018 for the predicted blizzard! Reopening Friday 1/5/2018 at 8 AM.
Stay safe and warm, everyone!
Due to the weather, Solstice MFA: Writers Helping Writers Reading & Silent Auction has canceled. All other events will happen as scheduled.
Stay safe, stay dry.
