Painting for Play

Age: 2-4
6 Tuesdays: 1/7-2/11 
9:30-10:15 am
Cost: $115 (10% off for members) 

This group is all paint, all experiments, and all fun. Small artists use different kinds of paint, techniques and painting implements to begin learning the basics of playing with color and texture, while developing gross and fine motor skills through movement and mess! Art for toddlers and preschoolers is inherently process oriented, and this program allows for toddlers to fully engage in the process of creative exploration

Jen Blesso
9:30-10:15 AM
6 Fridays
Cost: $105 (10% member discount available)

This process-oriented group is designed for caregivers and children to together discover the process of art play. Caregivers can learn how to promote the creative development of their young artists, and children learn to enjoy exploring materials in a safe place to make a mess! All materials are non-toxic, and the creative process is emphasized in a developmentally appropriate way. The child gets to control the artmaking, and care is taken to offer a balanced array of sensory experiences

Creative Arts Junior

Ages 3-5 years 
6 Fridays 1/10-2/14
10:30- 11:15 AM

Through age appropriate art experiences with a variety of media, your child will explore basic art skills with a balance of structure and experimentation. Groups are designed to build problem-solving and expressive skills, as well as reinforce your child’s natural creative tendencies. All materials and concepts are presented in a way that takes into account the child’s creative interests, developmental level, and any particular cognitive, social, and emotional needs.

This is a 45 minute class for young dancing yogis. The class is designed to allow kids to explore a variety of movement from creative movement, pre-ballet, and yoga. In addition, the class will introduce young and dance games. If your little loves to move and has a free, independent spirit, this is the class for them! Little Masters Drop In is 15 minutes after this, so you can combine art and movement for your little one!

Drop In Story time

Tuesdays 10:30-11:15 AM

NOT your usual story time. We choose books with a careful eye toward art concepts and themes that emphasize creativity, flexibility, and validation of everyone’s artistic worth, then follow with an art activity that explores fine art concepts in a way that connects to the story.

Little Masters Drop In

Age: 3-5 years

Cost: $10/$5 members

Each week, we’ll take a look at works by different well-known artists, talk about what we see, and then explore the artists’ style in our own way. Pollock splatter paintings with a salad spinner? Invent your own shapes for a  Matisse collage? Check our Facebook page each Wednesday to see what artist is coming up next! Lil Dancing Yogis is before this; you can combine movement and art for your little one.
