Hands On Art & Self Expression (1-4 years)
One of the most intriguing ways that youngsters express themselves is through art. As children draw, paint and make collages, they are learning about the world. Art can give Toddlers a sense of color coordination and spatial relationships. In this class our kiddos will express themselves through the use of different materials and techniques. Join us in the art room as we use a rainbow of colors, clay, paint, paste and so much more to pique your child's curiosity and creativity in this exciting multimedia program.
