Sense of Wonder Art Class

Need to get your sense of wonder recharged? Well, your children are in luck and, by extension, you adults too. Pam Benjamin’s Sense of Wonder classes for kids ages 5 to 12 started up again this week — and she still has a few openings left on Wednesday afternoons.

Mrs. Benjamin hosts her free-form art classes in a studio located next to her home in Vineyard Haven. The large, open room is essentially a wall-to-wall homage to the creative process. Long tables are filled with art supplies, plus pretzel rods for young snackers, shelves are overflowing with tangible manifestations of young imaginations on fire, and an almost life-sized, papier-mâché giraffe looks on.

Upcoming additions to the program include a possible home-schooled class and a community service mural project on Monday afternoons for high school students.
