Give your child the advantage of early learning through art. At this age, your child is able to express themselves with art and take confident ownership of their results! Studies show that toddlers benefit from early art experiences since it enhances their perception, spacial awareness, attention and other cognitive skills. Making art also develops fine motor skills that are so important for literacy later on, and builds your child’s confidence. This class is a firm start on the path towards a lifelong love of art. Returning Mini-Mini’s will already be comfortable in the space and we will be building upon the skills learned in the MMA1 class. An unexpected benefit: parents or caregivers may find themselves relaxed and enjoying the tactile creative activities as well! Class size is limited.
