Early Childhood Visual Arts

New projects EACH session! Ignite your child's imagination--fuel their creativity! Add arts to their school curriculum!

Young children are natural explorers and the visual arts provide sensory, expressive and social opportunities. Early childhood classes are designed to provide experiences with multiple mediums (paint, drawing tools, clay) and value the process of art-making over the products created. Dress for mess and come for fun! Smocks and all materials provided.

Parents/guardians of preschool-age students (below kindergarten age) are requested to stay onsite during classes. Please be in proximity to the classroom space in order to assist your child with toileting needs and/or need of additional support.
