Our class emphasizes creating and exploring various modalities of creating and experiencing art  through various sensory positive experiences. Using brushes, hands, feet, leaves, pinecones, anything we can find as our painting tools, we will try it!  In class you and your child will have opportunities for shared and individual exploration time in addition to group projects, story time and songs.
