Parent and Child Mini Scribblers

Ages 18 months – 3 years with parent or caregiver
This 45 minute class is a great opportunity for parents or caregivers to guide their toddlers through the exploration of materials perfectly suited to their innate interests.  They’ll be drawing with special crayons that glide on the page, using stamps big enough for feet and hands, watercolors that vividly demonstrate color-mixing, glue that’s easy to spread, fabric that’s soft and bright in color, scissors that are easier to hold, and the list goes on and on.  We make it a priority to seek out the best art materials for our youngest artists!  Every material and project is carefully selected to complement the unique characteristics that define “toddlerhood”.  This class is great for developing socialization, fine and gross motor skills, understanding of cause and effect, language acquisition and an emerging awareness of themselves as artists.

Please note that children must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver at all times during this class

Pre-scribblers with Scribble Art Workshop

Ages 3 – 5 years

This 45 minute class, preschoolers explore collage, painting, drawing, sculpture, and printmaking. Every project is multi-layered and completed over a series of several classes ending with an art show at the conclusion of the project where we begin to verbalize our process. One of the most important goals we collaborate with other artists in the studio as well as begin to talk about their work and their process with their peers. This class is great for developing an exploration to promote understanding through complex mixed media work and an emerging focus on the product, and social skills.
