Summer SAVI: BIG
Week 7: August 23 - August 27, 2021
9 AM - 12 PM EST
With "BIG" as our theme, we will be shifting scale up to mural size, growing taller in our skills, building the confidence to work large. Some ways we'll explore this medium is through large-format paper, big ol' brushes, learning to translate small objects into large drawings, and beyond.
Some of the crafts to look forward to: papier-mâché planet mobile, life-sized portraits, batik tapestry, wheat-paste vision board collage, gesture drawings, sidewalk chalk.
What is Summer SAVI?
Social Art Virtual Immersion ("SAVI" for short) is one of the flagship offerings of Alex Makes Art! This is an interactive group art-making experience with a carefully curated box component. Each 5-day session of SAVI dives into a new medium. We will 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 are signing up for a Monday through Friday session, five consecutive days, from 9 AM - Noon, EST. Each week of SAVI will engage your creative 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 email@example.com. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
How To Participate
You will receive an email 30 minutes before class starts with a link to the class and access instructions.

My daughter thrived in her private class. Miss Alex guided all of my daughter's creative ideas around an agreed-upon theme into a personal self-expression that inspired continued growth in the subject. Her positive spirit and seasoned expertise, combined with my daughter's enthusiasm and drive, made the experience of making art full of wonder and joy.

I really like the instructor and the class a lot. The instructor is always lively and prepared.
The instructor was not on the website on Twitch and I couldn't get the class this weekend, not the one before. The Twitch site says, "No videos available."

Great 😇 instructor and class usually. Note: Parent comment on previous review.
Please stop using multiple websites for the children! Use one website linked to Sawyer and/ or the usual direct link to Khai, and not Twitch...

We usually enjoy the classes and discussion, and instructor. We really enjoy the time slot as well and that it's therapeutic after a long week 😘!
Use one website for the Sawyer classes virtually. Take into consideration that not every parent wants their children/child surfing and connecting to foreign sites that mostly adults access. Personally, I don't want to keep adding space consuming Apps on our devices. Amen. Send notifications for the class start time and links, and any changes and cancellations ahead of time as a courtesy like Super now.com does.

Very nice 👍 group and instructors? I really appreciate that they kept everyone attentive and involved, and they were fair in soliciting the students for a response in discussion. Wonderful 😊😘 experience!
May be nice to have a younger group on a different day 💖.
