Just a quick word of advice, you might be better off checking around your
area to set the price competitive e for your area (and enough to cover your
expenses and make a profit in your case). We charge $5.00 a class, but often
that just covers supply expenses. I know other museums that charge $200 for
a week of camp - we would be run out of town. Another example is other
Children's Museums charge between $75 - $150 for birthdays they think I'm
nuts for charging only $20 but again our market would not accept higher

paper), papier mache puppet heads (and sewed the bodies!!), cement and tile
stepping stones (had my hubby's help w/the cement mixing), plaster and bead
coasters and more. If any of these sound interesting to you, let me know
and I'll elaborate.

Can I ask what you charge? And I would love elaboration on some of the
projects, the stepping stones, the bark painting, the puppets...sounds
wonderful! I am considering starting a holiday or summer art camp here in
my home/studio and I am not sure how to price it.

Thanks in advance,
