Kids Art Classes

Creating Art Provides Children with Skills for Self-Expression and Communication

Creativity is the single most important trait for leaders of the future. Yet American kids are falling behind in this critical area. Our schools have cut back on or eliminated arts programs, and we're over scheduling them, leaving little time for them to pretend and explore on their own. –

Research shows that for children growing up in our rapidly changing world, the arts teach vital modes of seeing, imagining, inventing and thinking. Art is a visual language that speaks to students with all learning styles, providing them the opportunity to create, problem solve, and think critically. Art education engages children more fully in all aspects of learning and gives them a richer understanding of themselves and the world around them. Art encourages children to become curious and imaginative!

Little Tykes Process Art (Open Ended Art & Sensory Play)

Little Tykes Toddler Process Art ClassIt’s all about the process here! In this 8-week class your young artist will be self-directed, choice-driven, and celebrate the experience of discovery. In process art, the final product is always unique and the focus lies in the creation of the work, not necessarily the final outcome. Little artists along with their caregivers will be guided through sensory-based art activity stations to promote the growth of their social, emotional, and physical development while engaging in open ended art projects. Each week brings different adventures and themes, with stations where children can play, experiment & discover how things feel & work along without being tied to a structured end project. Toddlers will get to explore painting with non conventional art tools like a potato masher, salad spinner, toothbrush, dancing as we paint with our feet, painting with trucks and cars, stamping with legos and a whole lot more! Be prepared to embrace the mess in this class and then leave it all behind! Our 8-week session is designed especially for children ages 24 months – 4 years (with guardian).
