What parents are saying...

K came home with big smiles every day and was so proud to show us his gallery at week’s end. Little Loft is a great asset for the neighborhood!
Thank you again for a wonderful week at camp. M had such an amazing time and the art she brought home shows the true passion and creativity of your work.
We have been talking up camp since we found out you were offering it, and it surpassed our wildest expectations. To say that S loved it feels like a huge understatement. He actually thanked me every day for sending him! He spent this morning in his “art studio” at home, after an art show where he showed me everything he made with you last week. Thank you a million times over for everything you did to develop his creative pleasures over the last month.
