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.
