At a time when Brooklyn is arguably at its dreariest, join us for a class that celebrates the light!

 *Given that it will be FEBRUARY, we've planned camp as a shorter day just in case the weather doesn't cooperate for some time outside. Please note there is a possibility we will need to spend the day indoors. Though we will always do our best to squeeze in even just a walk around the block if we can!

Camp week: $500 for the week - THIS CAMP IS FULL

camp week 1 

with SAMantha

Ages: 5-9 years old

Class Time: 9am-1:30pm (drop off begins at 8:45am)

Dates: 6/17/24-6/21/24

Designed for families of children enrolled in schools that end earlier, this camp runs for a shorter day because our regular after school program is still running until the last day of public school, June 26th. 

Distinctive dragons! Mercurial monsters! Powerful princesses! In this class we will look to literature to inspire our art-making. We'll read stories new and old and then use painting, drawing, sculpture, collage and more to bring our ideas to life. Students will also make some books and stories of their own: giant books, pop-up pages, painted comics, the sky's the limit!

We will not be offering camps in August this year.
We'll be using that time to reset, creatively recharge, and prepare for fall!

  • Do you offer Drop In Classes?
    We do! We offer drop in options for any of our Early Childhood classes that are not full. Drop In registration opens the first day of the semester. Simply click here or on the "Drop In Class" button beside the class you are interested in to register. The class fee includes one adult and one child. You can register for as many drop in classes as you like, there is no limit. We cannot accommodate refunds or credits for missed drop-in classes at this time. Advanced registration for drop in classes is required, we cannot accommodate drop-ins at the door/at the time of class.
  • What if my child misses a class?
    We are not able to offer refunds for missed classes unless we cancel a class. Each enrolled family can schedule 2 makeup classes per semester. If you enroll in a class, you'll be given instructions for how to arrange a makeup, should you miss a class. Makeups are permitted as space allows and are on a first come, first served basis. Makeups must be scheduled for the same semester in which you are enrolled. They do not carry over to future semesters. Drop-in classes are not eligible for makeups, credit, or refunds.
  • Does a grownup have to attend classes with my child?
    For our Early Childhood Classes (ages 1.5-4) we do ask that a grownup stay with your child for the duration of class. Our teachers lead each session, but having the child's grownup stay not only helps the child feel comfortable, but also offers adults tools and techniques for continuing art experiences at home.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    We understand that sometimes things come up that make it no longer possible for your child to attend class with us. But we ask that you also understand that late cancellations mean we are unlikely to be able to fill the space in the class, but have already made arrangements for staff and materials. We cannot accommodate refunds or credits for missed drop-in classes at this time. You have two options for cancellation of semester-long classes: Option 1: More than 4 weeks prior to the first class? You can receive credit for the full class minus a $75 cancellation fee. Less than 4 weeks prior to the first class but more than 1 week? You can receive 50% credit for the class minus a $75 cancellation fee. Cancellations made less than one week prior to the start of class are not eligible for credit. Option 2: If it's more than one week prior to the start of class and we are able to fill your spot from the waitlist (if there is one), we will refund you the cost of the class minus a $75 cancellation fee. We cannot give refunds less than one week prior to the start of class. Please note that we only offer full (100%) refunds for a class if WE cancel the class. We are also unable to offer refunds for days or classes missed due to illness or travel. Even if it's COVID. Two makeup classes per semester are available for all of our Early Childhood classes. Drop-in classes are not eligible for credit or refunds.
  • How do the semesters work?
    With the goal of creating classes that are at different price points and therefore accessible to more families, we split the winter semester into two parts: Semester A and Semester B. You can register for just one, or both (now for a discount!). In response to feedback provided by families, we are testing out running our Saturday classes as one longer (8 week) semester. We welcome your feedback on the topic!
  • Can I bring my child's sibling if they are outside the age group?
    Possibly! We want to work with families to create a meaningful art experience for everyone attending our classes. So if you would like to bring a child's sibling who is outside the age group listed in the description, please just email us: info@theartannexbrooklyn.com. If they are within the age group, please just sign them up for a drop in that day.
  • Do you offer discounts or scholarships?
    We fundamentally believe that people of all ages deserve access to high quality arts programming. If you or your child would like to attend one of our classes but cannot for financial reasons, please contact us at info@theartannexbrooklyn.com.
  • What are your COVID safety protocols?
    The Art Annex will be carefully following current CDC and local guidance, and will update our policies as necessary. Masks are now optional for students and their grownups in our Early Childhood Classes. The door will be kept open to ensure air circulation (weather permitting), HEPA air purifier will remain on at all times along with fans to circulate air, and all shared equipment will be cleaned between classes. All of our Early Childhood teachers are vaccinated and boosted.
