Give your child the advantage of exciting early learning through art. Even before they can speak children are able to take ownership of their art making and can even choose their favourite colours! These formative experiences build their confidence. Studies show that toddlers benefit from early art classes since it enhances their perception, spacial awareness, attention and other cognitive skills. As well they develop fine motor skills that are so important for literacy later on. An unexpected benefit: parents or caregivers can spend some time, relax and enjoy the tactile creative activities as well.
Class size is for 6 children. Register early because these classes fill up fast!
