The arts aren’t just important because they improve math skills. They are important because they speak to parts of children’s well-being which are otherwise untouched.

Better together!  Your little one will have fun learning and spending quality time with their favorite grown-up.   An age-appropriate introduction to art and creativity for preschoolers and a grown-up, these Art Babies classes are the perfect way to lay the foundation for a lifelong love of the arts. Each class of this six–week session will introduce grown-up/child pairs to a different art material and creative concept with plenty of hands-on time to explore. Process and experimentation will be the focus as we explore color theory and painting, texture and finger-paint, drawing and oil pastels and 3 Dimensions and wood sculpture. Perfect for a child plus a parent, grand parent, aunt, uncle, god-parent etc.
