Toddlers
Parent/Tot Visual Arts
(for children ages 24-36 months and their favorite adult):

Art provides many valuable learning experiences for toddler-age children, including problem-solving and self-expression.  This is particularly important for two-year-old children, since their language skills are not yet fully developed.  Join us for 45 minutes of exploration, where we focus on the process (as opposed to the product) of drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, printmaking, and more!  Resources for parents on each medium and its relevance to toddlers will be available each week. Topics will be enhanced by an appropriate children’s picture book, museum masterpiece, song, game, puppet activity and snack.  Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind class!  We look forward to meeting you!
Minimum 6 Maximum 10.   $13 per child, per class.   Available for 4-10 week sessions.

Once Upon a Picture:  In this one-hour class children hear stories, study illustrators’ styles, and create their own artwork in the style of the illustrators.  The goals of this program are to provide another way for children to connect with books, increase children’s awareness of how art fits together with the words of a story, and familiarize children with illustrators’ styles.
Minimum 6 Maximum 12 .  $14 per child, per class.  Available for 4-10 week sessions.

Children in Art:  Leave your passports at home – we are bringing the museums to you!  Join us as we take a virtual trip around the world to visit famous works of art about CHILDREN.  Each week we will learn about a different masterpiece and the artist that created it through fun discussions, games and hands-on art projects. All discussions are inquiry-based and all projects are process-based.  Artists studied will include Francisco de Goya, Mary Cassatt, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Vincent van Gogh and more.
Minimum 6 Maximum 12.   $14 per child, per class. Available for 4-10 week sessions.
