About

Hey there, my name is Krystal and I am a Milford mom of two. I have my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education and run a Mothers Group with my church. I have successfully taught Painting, Clay Sculpting, and a Cartoon Workshop at Hamden Hall Country Day School’s Summer Academy Program here in Connecticut.

The Backyartists came about when thoughts of signing up my own children for extracurriculars this summer began to throw me in different directions. I knew I wanted a safe, social, outdoor environment for my little ones in which I felt comfortable. So I figured, why not give my kids their own social environment in our backyard, while allowing for them to do some of their favorite activities and invite a small group to join in the fun?!

We will be learning and practicing our painting & sculpting skills, while also having time for free-play and outdoor activities/explorations. All materials will be included, and the kids will get to take home their sweet creations! Children will bring their own snack, and will be picked up just in time for lunch. Parents will be responsible for applying sunscreen and providing it for the day, if necessary.

Classes will be ongoing for an eight week session, Tues/Thurs mornings – rain or shine! Age Range is 2 – 6 yrs old. Class size is limited to 6 children (including my 2 kids). Reservations will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis, so contact me today to reserve your spot(s)!

Come & join your backyard friends, the Backyartists, for some summer fun in 2021!
