Art & Play Separation Class
(2 1/2 - 3 1/2 years)
2 Hours
Summer Schedule
A loving and supportive art class for children (and families!) that helps to develop independence, self-esteem, self-expression and socialization with other children and adults. Routines and activities are similar to Art & PlayTogether, but expanded to 2 hours to include snack (provided by family), story time & other activities. As children feel comfortable, we encourage adults to leave the classroom, with the expectation that they will be able to leave the classroom for the entire time by the session's end. Because every child separates in their own way and time, classroom experiences are individualized to meet each families' specific needs. Children may be enrolled in more than one day per week.

Art & Play Together
(20 mos - 4 years w/adult)
1 Hour
Summer Schedule
A nurturing and inspiring introduction to art materials for children and caregivers alike! Little ones explore paints, glue, collage, sculpture, building and craft doughs to their heart's content, while adults are encouraged to take an observant but gently "hands-off" approach to artwork, allowing children to create in their own style. Each 1-hour class includes creative play, a hello song, easel painting, weekly project and a goodbye song. Simple routines are introduced as children are ready. We emphasize process over product, and getting messy is a big part of the fun, so please dress accordingly!

Crazy Concoctions/Summer
(5 - 7 year olds)
2 Hours
Summer Schedule
Mushy and messy creative explorations for the child who loves to get their hands goopy! Children will brew recipes for all sorts of paints, clays, blubbers and slimes, and other marvelous art mixtures, all the while learning about the properties of ingredients and what they can do when combined. Children will have the chance to play nutty professor, create their own concoctions and play with them all!
