Re: Oakland All Day Summer Camp for under $300 week?
Summer camp was a big sticker shock for us, too, not to mention the transportation logistics. The city parks & rec departments are the way to go. In Oakland, our kids have really enjoyed Studio One summer camp, which has 9am-5pm days for -- brace yourself -- $150/week for city residents. Throw in a couple of weeks of that, and you can still afford some Monkey Business or another more expensive camp if you want, if your kid has friends are going there, etc.
Hi all, I am looking at sending my 6 year old daughter to Studio One's Summer Art Camp for part of the summer. I was wondering if anyone out there has sent their child there and what your experience with it was. I didn't see anything in the Archives about this. Mostly I am concerned that the kids are well supervised and that the teachers/counselors actually pay attention to the kids rather than spending more time chatting with themselves. (My sister works in Parks and Rec in SoCal and I've heard some stories...) Also, I want to make sure that there is structure/discipline because I can see the potential for a bit of chaos. Claire
Re: Collage class for an adult
Try Studio One on 45th in Oakland (Temescal). It's such a cool place with great teachers. good luck
Studio One in Oakland has an interesting variety of art classes - jewelmaking, photography, painting, etc. They are taught by good artists. Most classes are mixed aged groups with special discount for teens. They also have a few art classes that are specifically for teens. They are in the phone book and located around 42nd St., between Broadway and Telegraph. Lisa
one of the great secrets/bargains is Studio One, an art studio, in north Oakland. It's run by the city of Oakland, which means it is cheap. The art classes are excellent, taught by very talented artists. There are classes for both children and adults. The only drawback is that it is in an unreinforced masonry building, which they warn you about when you enter. The entrance is on 45th Street near Shafter.
Studio One in Oakland has an after school program for kids from age 6. One of the classes is a martial arts class with instructor Bill Owens. He also has a private studio, but has been employed by Oakland Parks and Recreation for a number of years. The class is from 3:30-5, and includes a snack break. An 8 week session only costs $15 for Oakland residents and perhaps a few more dollars for non-residents. He has a performance at the end of the session on a Saturday for the students to show off their new talents. My daughter took the class a few times and really enjoyed learning the routines. Bill Owens is a patient teacher and works well with the kids, teaching them when it is appropriate to use the moves as well as when it is not. Leslie
