Shine with us this winter in the Hamptons, NYC, and beyond!

From preschool-alternative platforms to in-Studio crafting sessions to at-home and outdoor classes, Shine is ready to help your family navigate creative, extracurricular activities this winter. Shine’s programming covers everything from art to cooking, fashion design, construction, school work, and more! Our customizable classes, camps, and workshops are open to children 6 months to 12 years, and are the perfect supplement to an ever-changing traditional school program.

Shine’s Winter Semester runs from

Monday, January 24 – Friday, March 25th

Preschool & K Alternative Programs led by Aaron Goldschmidt

Available in the Hamptons, Shine’s founder Aaron Goldschmidt will be leading the Little Luminaries platform at the Studio or can start a private program for your children and their friends. With over 20 years of experience developing curriculum and running preschools, Aaron has all the tools to set your child up for a successful, exciting, and enriching semester of school. *Spaces are limited and will be booked on a first-come first-served basis.

Arts Classes, Camps, & Workshops

Shine’s mobile classes, camps, and workshops are up and running! We are available to come directly to you, whether we meet indoors, your backyard, or a nearby park to explore and engage in outdoor creativity. Choose from one of our signature programs or create your own to match your child’s interests and passions. Additionally, we will be running many of our most popular classes at our new space The Shine Studio in Bridgehampton.

Craft & Activity Bags and Online Classes

Our Winter Craft & Activity Bags are available on their own, or can be combined with our online craft workshops so your child can learn and create no matter where they are! Each bag is filled with the supplies to make several of our signature projects, and provides hours of creative engagement. Shine can also help you organize a virtual party or get together by mailing a curated bag to your guests and leading the craft workshop online!

A few of our popular classes include:

  • Little Luminaries (ages 16 months – 6 years): The perfect compliment to traditional preschool through K programs.
  • Listillos (Ages 2 – 12 years): Our original literacy and creative arts-based Spanish class.
  • Globe Trekkers (ages 4 – 12 years): Travel and culture meet as students make their way around the world and “visit” a new country every week. They’ll explore the art, music, flavors and games that make that country unique and gain an appreciation for other languages and traditions.
  • Block Party (ages 4 – 12 years): Through our custom constructive arts program, students become architects as they learn to think outside the (Lego) box and use various building materials to design, sculpt, and discover!
  • I, Shine* (ages 4 – 12 years): Our new mind, body, and wellness class focuses on social-emotional learning activities, and includes self-defense training, yoga, and meditation.
