Early Childhood Music: Early childhood music classes offer the opportunity to engage children and adults in age appropriate singing, movement and rhythm instruments as children discover the creative energy intrinsic to the arts. Classes are designed to support children’s development as they learn to feel and keep a steady beat, find their singing voices and discover the joy of sharing music with others in their community. The repertoire includes both traditional and original songs, chants, stories, finger plays and nursery rhymes. Classes also provide parents and caregivers with a variety of ideas and strategies to continue the exploration beyond classes.
Early Childhood Visual Arts: A fun and exploratory forum for children to begin experimenting with a variety of traditional and non-traditional art media. Process is emphasized over product in age-appropriate sessions. Children learn about basic art concepts such as line, color, shape and texture. Art activities include multi-sensory experiences, story time, and play designed to advance your child's development and foster an early appreciation for the arts. Parents and children will enjoy this opportunity to bond with one another and interact with other children and parents.
