Sun Porch Studio offers art instruction to children with a focus on buildingIMG_0408 skills in creative risk taking and developing artistic confidence. All children are honored as working artists and their imaginative ideas help guide their personal creative process. Although children work in the same art medium, instruction is given on an individual basis. To help each artist work towards a personal potential, classes are intimate and cap at 8 students.

What will we be doing?

Artists have been painting outdoors for centuries because nature offers inspiration for creating art that celebrates a love for our surroundings.
At CAMP EN PLEIN AIR, children will discover the natural wonders in our neighborhood. We will explore landscape drawing and painting while learning about our local environment.

On Wednesday, June 21, IMG_0415we will be meeting at Frank Melville Memorial Park from 1-3:30pm 

On Thursday, June 22, we will be meeting at The Stony Brook Duck Pond and Grist Mill  from 1-3:30pm. 

To find out more about CAMP ON THE SUN PORCH and to REGISTER your children ages 6-12, please contact:

We hope to see you at the Sun Porch this summer!

During the warmer months, SUMMER ARTS @ THE SUN PORCH offers art workshops to adults in landscape painting and tie-dye. Our creative experiences are for adults who yearn to remember what it feels like to get messy and create magic with their hands. No experience is EVER necessary, however, you must be willing to laugh and value wabisabi, the belief that there is beauty in the imperfect.


Creative Art Parties are offered in tie dye, jewelry making and sculptural painting activities. Art Parties are most meaningful with children ages 5 and up in groups of 15 or less. A two-hour event is organized with a special art making activity, an art related game, and creative cupcake decorating.

    So glad you are holding classes this season. Callan will be there on the 11th, and probably the winter session too. I will be there for the Drink and Do. Please let me know how and when you want to be paid. Thanks again, Susan Blake
