Upcoming2–3 years w Adult/ Mini-Art Adventures / Wednesdays 10:15-11:15am Spring


(1 Hour) Age group: 2–3 years with Adult. (Min. 3/ Max 6)  (Simple French is included.)

The Curriculum is responsive to the developmental needs of each age group, carefully tailored and ever changing to suit the children’s interests.  Instead of rushing  children through activities, they are given ample opportunity to be active collaborators in the design of their class. Using a wide range of interesting art materials such as clay, wire, eyedroppers, diverse painting tools and techniques (to name a few) children explore, identify and reinforce language, colors, shapes, numbers while practicing motor skills and appropriate art language in a fun and nurturing environment. Adults engage in this class while learning techniques to foster the joy of learning art as well as age appopriate art language.  Each class begins with our unique group “sticky mural” decoration, with thematic items changing each week. Song and storytelling are included in this comprehensive class.  Through all of our activities, our goal is to promote confidence through choice-making as well as the freedom of self-expression while applauding and encouraging each stage of development.

Class size is limited to 12 participants/ 6 children.

5% Discount for All Souls School Children & Siblings!  New students: $45 Trial classes available.  (Proration may also apply to start date.)
