Next Week at Art Haven Summer Programs:

Join Art Haven for our first week of summer 2014 programming:
Nature Week!
Your kids will get to take advantage of all that Gloucester has to offer through exploration of the local natural world.
With projects like Rock Stacking, Sand Sculptures, Found Objects Collage, Sand Raking, and Beach Mandalas, we will work to give your children an adventure that will help them appreciate the things that make Gloucester so special.
Through hands-on activities and artistic skills training your child will come home with great stories, creative artwork, and new friends and memories to last a lifetime. 

Last Summer at Art Haven Summer Programs:

Miss us last summer?

Last year’s nine weeks of summer programs were a huge success.
Our “Summer Passport Program” allowed students to explore the cultures of Mexico, Italy, Kenya, Greece, France, Tahiti, and China, and our partnership with Maritime Gloucester got them learning about culture a little closer to home.
Over the course of the summer we worked with 64 kids, and were able to provide scholarship money for 27 of them – that’s 42%!
We are grateful to our students, their families, and the generous donors who make our programs possible.
Looking forward to summer 2014!

Take advantage of the fun and creative space that Art Haven creates each summer for kids entering grades 1-5! 

Our programs run from 9-1 and promote creativity and confidence through hands on learning and collaboration with talented local artists and fun, energetic summer staff.

Your kids can enjoy a reasonably priced summer program that gives flexibility through weekly sign ups. A healthy lunch is provided daily by The Open Door and Project Bread. Take advantage of our flexible pick up time from 1 pm-3 pm while your kids further explore their talents with the skills they learned earlier in the day!

Our summer staff will ensure that each moment is special and that new friendships are made so your child will have a summer adventure they will never forget!

We were a bit starstruck when Maritime Gloucester got a shout-out from New Zealand during Wednesday night’s live broadcast of a giant squid dissection! Watch the broadcast here.
