The Vacation Arts Program is a non-competitive environment that encourages each young artist to develop their interests, grow in their own personal style and work with others as they explore the world of art.

Field Trips: On Friday the groups will attend a field trip to a local arts & cultural institution. If applicable, children will be taking public transportation to and from this location. There is no additional cost of participating in field trips and a bagged lunch is provided. Specific information regarding field trips each session will be sent at the start of the program.

Yoga: Youth will participate in an hour long Yoga class by Urbanity Instructors that will help develop strength, flexibility, coordination and focus. Through the use of Yoga postures children experience new ways to move their bodies and express themselves.

Creative Movement & Dance: Through a partnership with Urbanity Dance Studio, children will learn a variety of contemporary dance techniques such as jazz, ballet and hip hop.

Musical Theater: Rhythm, beats and tones will provide an exciting, expressive, and fun environment to stimulate children's developing brains.

"THE FAR SIDE OF KIMCHI" cooking class for adults
Come and make your own kimchi workshop. Learn how to make one of the world's healthiest foods. Kimchi is a way of fermenting (or pickling) vegetables and it is loaded with vitamins A, B, and C, but its biggest benefit may be in its "healthy bacteria" called lactobacilli, found in fermented foods. This good bacteria helps with digestion,and some studies show fermented cabbage has compounds that may prevent the growth of cancer. This pickle is packed with probiotics, which helps to prevent harmful build-up and reduces inflammation in your gut. Taught by Chef DIDI EMMONS, who was one of the two kimchi champions in the 2012 Greater Boston Kimchi Festival. You will make and take home 2 quarts of your own kimchi.
