    Brush & Needle is a little creative studio located in the Northwest Atlanta area. It's a space where creativity meets joy and where yesterday's challenges that seemed impossible are suddenly achievable. Our ultimate goal is to develop creativity in children. We believe the ability to think artistically has a positive effect on a child’s self-confidence and freedom in their thoughts. Here are the three main steps for each of our classes:

    We observe: We look at illustrations on the topic. We create: In any lesson, part of the task calls on young artists to approach with full responsibility and diligence. This step is where we honestly work and improve our skills.We rejoice: An obligatory and fascinating part of all classes - the celebration of all the things we create!

    Instead of filling enrollment on a first-come, first-serve basis, Girls on The Run forms a team with a lottery-based registration and enrollment. This is not specific to Bolton Academy, but for the entire Girls on the Run program. Parents of 3-5th graders will apply directly through their online platform as opposed to Eleyo since Girls on The Run will complete the lottery.

    Girls on the Run has an intentional, inclusive curriculum that focuses on developing competence, confidence, connection, character, caring and contribution in young girls. Twice per week, trained coaches lead small teams of elementary school girls in grades 3-5 through life skills lessons that incorporate running and other physical activities. At Girls on the Run, we understand that physical activity and health are directly tied to emotional and social well-being. We also support girls in gaining a better understanding of who they are, developing the importance of team work and healthy relationships, and recognizing how they can positively connect with and shape their communities and the world. The course culminates with a 5K race for the team to complete together.

    • Lottery registration: Closes Tuesday, August 30
    • Girl Placement Day: Wednesday, August 31 
    • Practices begin: week of September 12
    • Mondays & Wednesdays: 3:00-4:30 p.m. You must attend both days.
