From the Rhythmix website.

It’s that time of the year again … winter break, when your kids are home for two solid weeks. If you’ve got to work (or are just looking for something constructive for your kids to do), a number of local outfits are offering camps during the holiday break.

First up: The folks out at Rhythmix Cultural Works are offering a pair of short holiday break camps. They’re offering a “Cool Card Making” camp with Aliea Wallace from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. December 18 and December 20. The camp, which is for kids ages 6-12, costs $40 for a half day $75 for a full day or $130 for both days. The cost includes art supplies. Then from December 20-23, Jennifer Serr will be teaching a “Holiday Gift Camp.” Participants will make holiday gifts like sachets, eye pillows, tote bags, stockings and neck warmers. The sewing camp takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, and the cost is $275. The cost includes patterns and some supplies plus a daily snack, and participants will need to bring their own machines and general sewing supplies. Registration information is available on Rhythmix’s website. Rhythmix is at 2513 Blanding Avenue.

Next up: Art Yowza is offering one-day camps on December 17, December 20-23 and December 27-31 for kids ages 5-11. Camps are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and director Rebecca Stees offers a different theme each day. The cost is $65 per day, and snacks and supplies are included. Registration and information are available on Art Yowza’s website. They’re at 1617 Encinal Avenue.
