Summer adventures will focus on a different theme each week — including (but not limited to) Pete the Cat, social justice, Harold and the Purple Crayon, detective themes, STEM, dinosaurs, and strange phenomenon. Each summer adventure will include crafts, storytimes, games, songs, and snacks! Each camper will get a free Blue Crew t-shirt, too!

Art Smart Workshops Offer Educational Opportunities for Preschoolers

Art Smart Workshops Offer Educational Opportunities for Preschoolers

SIGN UP FOR APRIL’s ART SMART WORKSHOPS!

We’re doing our preschool crafts a bit differently at the new store, and the changes are going to be awesome! Rather than doing varying crafts each week, we’re going to be a bit more focused with monthly themes.

The change will allow our youngest crafters to achieve in-depth understanding of each month’s themes as they explore each concept and absorb our learning goals into their growing brains.

Each month’s theme will include crafts, small- and large-motor skill development, educational goals, songs, stories, and a lot of FUN!

Our inaugural Art Smart theme will celebrate the Colors of Spring! We will be crafting, experimenting, mixing, and playing with all the colors of the rainbow. Art Smart workshops are intended for children ages 3 through 5 years old. Parents may sign their children up for either Tuesday sessions or Thursdays sessions — both days will meet at 10:30 a.m.

Tuesday classes will meet April 3, April 10, April 17, and April 24.

Thursday classes will meet April 5, April 12, April 29, and April 26

Spaces in Art Smart workshops is VERY limited, and pre-registration is required. The all-inclusive total cost for all four sessions is $19.99 and covers all instruction, supplies, and fun!

To sign up for our April Art Smart workshop series, please purchase your child’s seat in advance.
