Middle & High School Programs

Guided Open Studios, drawing and painting classes, and Art-Away trips for middle and high schoolers are designed to offer students the freedom to explore their own creative ideas and passions in an open and supportive environment. Guided Open Studios are offered in two locations – at the studio on Bluff St and in South Boulder.  Art-Away Trips to Washington, DC, Baltimore and Santa Fe occur twice a year in the spring and summer.

Art-Away Excursions

Explore the world of art.

Open Window Studio Art-Away Trips are an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the art world of a different city. We spend our days visiting world famous art museums and out of the spotlight art galleries.

We visit artist studios to get an inside look at the artist’s process and, when possible, participate in an art class at a local art college. In the evenings we retreat to a private home where we have plenty of down time to process the day and relax. We make art, watch movies and eat home cooked meals. Each excursion is limited to 8 students, allowing for a quality community experience.

    • March 22-28, 2020 – Washington D.C. and Baltimore
    • July 14-20, 2019 – Santa Fe, NM

Guided Independent Studio

Led by Page.

This is a fun “meet up” for middle and high schoolers. Together and with Page, students create a studio art environment where they can feel free to explore their ideas, take creative risks and develop technical skills. All that is required is a love for making art, a willingness to explore ideas and a respectful and supportive attitude towards fellow students.

We meet in the spacious, light filled art room at Bear Creek Elementary School which is in walking distance from Southern Hills Middle School and Fairview High School. Students from all schools are welcome!

**students are welcome to arrive early and wait outside the art room in either the lounge area or outside deck. If they have an ongoing project that they can set up quietly, they may do so. I have a class of elementary students that ends at 4:35 and ask that older students do not disturb this class.

Follow your Muse at Open Hands Art Studio

Tuesdays
3:30pm – 6pm

This class takes place at Open Hands Art Studio on Bluff St in Boulder, where ceramic artist, Sue Allman has her clay studio, and Page has her painting studio. Students may alternate at their choice between the two studios and work with clay, paint, or mixed media. Sue and Page are there to guide them creatively and technically. Our goal is to provide an environment of cooperation and support where each participant has the time and freedom to explore and grow creatively.

Open Hands Art studio

Join Page this fall and develop your drawing and painting skills.  This is a fun and dynamic class for children who want to practice their skills while exploring new materials and techniques with other art-enthusiastic kids. In a single class, one student may be learning to stretch their own canvas while another explores charcoal and still another makes large paintings on paper. There is plenty of individual attention from Page, as well as support and feedback from the group as a whole.
