Wingspan Studio: Spring/Summer Camps
Wingspan Studio offers the most inspiring camps around. Art, French, Nature - Explore!
We weave the wonders of the natural world, art, culture and core subjects together in such a seamless way, that your child doesn't even know they're learning! Wingspan carefully balances artistic process and final product with self-direction and instruction, to intentionally make space for success and confidence to blossom in all. Our camps take place in a real working art studio in Burlington's funky and industrial South End Arts District. We picnic and play during lunch in nearby parks and work outdoors much of each week. Walking field trips to natural areas, cool workshops and diverse businesses expand your child's interdisciplinary experience. Art, Fun, French and more come alive while your child thrives! Live to play. Play to learn. Learn to soar!
Join them at chez Wingspan Studio for a truly magical time. Director, Maggie Standley and her stellar studio assistants, lead each camp.

I took adult French from Madame Maggie after a long hiatus from language study, and she was a perfect teacher. Patient, fun, knowledgable, and with an innate curiosity that makes her successful at teaching all ages. Also a wonderful artist, I think she brings new ways of seeing to her classes. The learning atmosphere is vibrant and laid-back, yet effective. I was so sorry when the class ended. Highly recommended!

Madame Maggie has a beautiful studio in the heart of the South End Art District. The space invites creativity, and Madame Maggie offers abundant supplies for students to express themselves with. I had the pleasure of guest teaching for her last summer, and was impressed with her gentle and thoughtful approach to teaching, her joy in supporting students in their art and language studies, and her generosity in sharing her studio space.
I highly recommend Wingspan Studio's unique series of summer camps!...more

My two year old and I recently attended FRART with Madame Maggie and it was fantastic. She is great with the kids and encourages everyone - including the parents (I know i struggled way more than my daughter : ) The art projects were always fun - we have them hanging all over our house. I will def be taking another class in the future and look forward to learning more and more along with my toddler!

Maggie is a gifted and talented teacher. She teaches with an open mind and heart. My children have been the lucky beneficiaries of Maggie's talents for many years. She is able to get all the creative juices flowing from them and have a really fun experience at the same time. Her artistic knowledge of color and textures is limitless and helps the kids to explore past what they think they know.
My only regret is that we will not be...more

I had beginner's French with Madame Maggie, I had never learned a word in French before and I felt like that I learn quite a lot. She is a great teacher, and very patient, which is a plus when you are trying to learn French!

We took our little one to a French art class on a cold spring day and had a wonderful time. The studio space was warm and filled with creative energy. Madame Maggie was so kind and gave individual attention to each child. It was a nice balance between singing, painting, reading, and playtime!

I love that there's a place for kids to learn French in a fun and art-filled environment! My son attended a week-long summer camp in 2013, and Maggie's studio is a great place for learning and art. We're signed up again this year for the summer cartooning session with some friends. I wish I could go too!

L'ours est allé sur la montagne. That is what I heard as my 4 year old son and I were painting "The Bear Went Over The Mountain" in Madame Maggie's class.
My wife and two kids have been going to Madame Maggie's for over a month and already, my two year old will let out some French around the house. It is so adorable when she says "ohh la la." They always have an exciting story for me when I come home from work.
/> Now we are going to Saturday's class and I get to attend. After one class, I am in love with it. It is great for the kids. And, since it engages everyone who attends, it is great for the parents as well!...more

I am in my second session of FRART with my 4 yr old and 2 yr old. This is a great and engaging class for the children and for me too! Maggie makes learning French fun and incorporates it into art projects that the kids love. It's a great way for both adults and children to learn French.
