FAQs

Makers Art Collective - FAQ - Portsmouth, RI

WHAT IS PORTFOLIO PREP?

Some teens may be looking for opportunities to take classes to build up their portfolio or looking for new skills to add to their existing artistic tool belt. Portfolio Prep classes are for everyone! We just like to let teens know that the class is a good idea if they are looking to learn certain skills that will enhance their portfolio if they are planning to apply to art school or use their portfolio for college.

CAN KNITTING GROUPS MEET AT MAKERS ARE COLLECTIVE?

Yes! That is exactly what Open Stitch is perfect for! Bring your current project, some friends, and come on over! Visit our Open Stitch page for more info for dates, times, and drop in fees. If your group would like to meet at a time that is not on our site, email us - we’d love to see what we can do!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Come comfortable and ready to get a little messy! Depending on your class there may be paints used that will not wash out of clothes. We will provide aprons and smocks for you to use in class if you’d like to use them.

WHAT AGE IS CONSIDERED MIDDLE SCHOOL?

Anyone at least 10 years old is able to participate in middle school classes!

DO YOU HAVE ANY CLASSES FOR ELEMENTARY AGE KIDS?

Makers Art Collective is specifically built around teenagers and adults. We do not offer kids classes because there are so many great programs in the area designed for kids under 10 years old, we would encourage you to check those out for your young artist.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SUMMER CAMPS?

We definitely will! Our summer camps are called “Studio Weeks” and as we get closer to summer we will release our schedule! To be up-to-date on all upcoming classes at Makers Art Collective, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter!

ARE YOUR TEACHERS BACKGROUND CHECKED?

Yes! All our teachers are background checked! The safety of your teens is so important to us. We will do whatever it takes to make sure they are safe and secure while they are learning to create beautiful pieces of art!

HOW WILL WE KNOW IF CLASSES ARE CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER?

Great question! We will be following the local school schedule. If school is cancelled then so are we. You will get an email from us in the morning. Your safety is our priority!
