Workshops For Children

Toddlers and Twos: Saturdays 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.

Toddlers and Twos are curious and spontaneous and explore art as a learning experience, discovering what is exciting and engaging to them. In this class, their interests will flow freely throughout the many "invitations" presented to them to explore a variety of art materials. During this free-flowing process, they will discover their independence, their wonder of exploration, and share their joy in creating process-based art. 

Parent participation required.

New workshop dates coming soon!

Open Atelier: Art Exploration Wednesdays 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.

During Open Atelier, children will explore various art invitations for them to create, think, connect, and communicate in various ways to foster their creative intelligence. There will be many explorations offered that includes watercolors, paint, charcoal, clay, STEAM inspired, 2D and 3D structures.  Students will be challenged to create, experiment, and discover new and innovative ideas.
