Next up, for the month of June, we are bringing back two popular classes from the fall, Messy Makers and Adventures in Art! These two classes will be held Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4-5 pm. Messy Makers is a process-based art play class where the children will learn how to use materials and tools, receive basic instruction on different projects but then be free to create, utilizing and building upon their fine motor and creative thinking skills, while having a blast! During the Adventures in Art class, we will travel back through time to learn about different art and cultures. The children will be led through a series of process-based art projects inspired by the art of the past.
The first class, Messy Makers, starts June 2, and Adventures in Art starts June 3! So be sure to sign up now!
