Week 3: July 19 - July 23, 2021
9 AM - 12 PM EST
Week 3 of SAVI Summer has arrived! Let's play with COLOR! Painting week will be primarily focused on working with a variety of wet media; from acrylic paints, to inks, to gouache. Join us through the process of using old techniques in new and interesting ways!
Some of the crafts to look forward to: still life painting, landscape painting, paper marbling, paint pouring onto records.
What is Summer SAVI?
Social Art Virtual Immersion ("SAVI" for short) is one of the flagship offerings of Alex Makes Art: an interactive group art-making experience with a carefully curated box component. Each 5-day session of SAVI dives into a new medium. We explore a variety of art forms through drawing prompts, group crafting, virtual museum tours, guest artists, interactive art talks + live demos, studio walk-throughs, creative challenges, and more! ​
Summer SAVI runs from late June - August 2021. Participants sign up for classes Monday through Friday, five consecutive days, from 9 AM - Noon, EST. Each week of SAVI dive into a different mode and medium of making art.
Tuition: Each week of SAVI will be a flat rate of $449 per artist. In addition to your SAVI Box, here is what you get with your tuition: Studio Hours: every Wednesday studio hours will be hosted by Mr. Khai. This is a place where kiddos can participate in a space where they can continue their crafts under the guidance of one of our instructors. A SAVI T-shirt (please specify your kiddos size come summertime, in our form). Access to Crafternoons on Zoom. A Custom Alex Makes Art Sketchbook. Collectible SAVI holographic sticker badge to add to your summer sketchbook for each week that your kiddo attends.
Sibling Discount: There is a 15% sibling discount available.
Registrations will be processed on a first come first serve basis. We have limited spots and boxes for each week of programming, honoring our tight-knit interactive virtual setting. We offer a payment plan that you can select at check-out. You will be notified at least one-week before your class begins for box pick-up or shipping updates. If you are picking up your SAVI Box, our pick-up site is in Watertown, MA. You will be given the pick-up address upon registration. Option for ground shipping is available for $15/box, delivering right to your doorstep.
Late registration is based on availability and may incur rush shipping fees for materials.
Cancellation Policy: A partial tuition refund is granted if notified before Tuesday, June 15, 2021. Participants may be allowed to exchange, if space allows, with other courses of equivalent or lesser value. Please e-mail your request to Deposit fee of $100.00/week is non-refundable.
Referral Credit: You can receive a $25 gift certificate, added to your Sawyer account, by referring a friend to Summer SAVI. $25.00 per Family Referral. Please have your referral note your first and last name when filling out our form on Sawyer.
Financial Aid: We offer sliding scale and scholarship spots based on need. To inquire about this option, please contact us at


Be sure to prep your area for a potential crafty mess! A brown paper bag with masking tape, reusable table cloth, or garbage bag are some of our favorite go-to's for setting a space. We recommend a parent in earshot if your kiddo is new to crafting alone with new materials (especially the days we have a glue gun as an option!). A smock and a snickity snack are always great to have nearby. Did you know that artists can get hangry in record time? Since we'll be on camera for three hours together, please find a place in the house that has a reliable outlet so battery life will hold for the duration of class.

I'm so happy I signed up for this class! The box of supplies was quality and lots of thoughtful choices were made - from the colors to the types of paints and brushes. Khai was a great teacher, with lots of great inspo provided at the start of class, and from the work he was doing live. They made a point to always check in with each student on progress and gave lots of encouragement and ideas throughout. It was refreshing, fun, and relaxing. I can't wait for the next one.
