"My daughter has been taking classes at Refuge Lowell for little over a year and her experience has been beyond expectation. She has taken the Fine Arts for Middle Schoolers during the school year and then an intensive summer fun course. As my daughter started at 10 years old and this was her first real art class beyond very short blocks at school; being 3 hours in the evening and after school. We wondered if the class would be too long to hold her interest at the end of a school day, but this was NEVER an issue. 

My daughter would come bouncing out of the class session full of energy and life; exploding on me in the car about the various activities and projects she worked on that session. The teachers are warm and have a familiar rapport with the children yet they push the children a little outside their comfort zone at times. 

We've had a great experience with Refuge Lowell and look forward to continued participation in the various classes."

"Refuge has been nothing short of a blessing for my family. It has helped shape my son into a much better all around artist that is willing to step out of his comfort zone.

 

As a parent, nothing makes me prouder than being able to watch my son grow as a person and refuge has given me that opportunity."
