As winter slowly turns into spring, there are so many beautiful sights to be seen, sounds to be heard. The sun comes back to us once again, and the slowly growing warmth brings about so many changes. In this process-based art class, we’ll follow the change of the seasons. Activities will echo the progress of the seasonal shift, and give children time to freely explore a wide variety of open-ended materials. This approach gives children opportunities to truly be creative while developing authentic aesthetic sensibilities, as well as developmental skills that will enable them to flourish in their explorations for years to come.

Children will be invited to really jump-in and get to work in their art projects, which can get pretty messy. So, please send them in mess-able clothes, and be ready to get a bit messy yourself. This class is a caregiver accompanied class, where adults will be asked to help in small ways throughout each session while the children explore our daily art adventures!

*This class requires a caregiver to accompany each child and help out with small tasks like holding a jar of paint, or tying a knot, and generally helping children to engage and focus.

Stories of Spring - Preschool Art and Early Literacy Class

Age: 3 – 5 year olds

Day: Mondays

Time: 5:30pm – 6:15pm 

Location: Payson classroom

# of Sessions: 18

Fee per child: $350

This early literacy class, will focus on storytelling. Each week we will discuss a seasonal topic and then work on telling each other stories inspired by that topic. With help from the teacher we will transcribe and illustrate these stories, starting with one word descriptive vignettes, and culminating with multi-sentence, illustrated short stories.

 This class is designed to meet and challenge emergent early literacy skills. We will focus on beginning to describe things in a logical sequence and using descriptive language, as well as phonetic and phonemic awareness. 

 *This is a drop off class with a required helper rotation
