My 1st Portfolio: Session B: Ages 2-4

This is a special offering for young children and their caregivers. Children, along with their moms, dads, grandparents, or nannies, will participate in a formative creative experience that develops cognitive, sensory, and motor skills. Together, you’ll experiment with diverse materials and processes while enjoying a unique and artistic bonding experience. Caregivers will be active in each class, helping children to realize their own budding artistic vision.

No art experience is necessary for children or caregivers. Just come with an open mind and get ready to be engaged!

This is also a great way to help prepare young children for more formal educational settings. There will be a balance of keepsake artwork—pieces that the child and caregiver create together that you’ll want to hold onto for many years to come—and process-oriented exercises, allowing children to freely explore materials and techniques. Lessons will incorporate art themes and children’s literature, so caregivers can find both creative and intellectual value in the course.
