Squiggles to Grins

Ages 2 1/2 – 4 with Parent

Discovering the pure joy and absolute excitement of creating original art — with the bonus of having Mommy or Daddy* right there — is what SQUIGGLES TO GRINS is all about!

Two and three year olds are introduced to the lines and shapes that make up the ‘language’ of art. This is achieved through creative activities designed to enhance their motor skills, and complemented with inspiring storytelling, poetry, and sing-alongs created by Parents’ Choice Awardwinning ® singer/songwriters. At this age level they find great delight in exploring this new language by using washable paints and other non-toxic art materials to create recognizable forms. Their artful squiggles are soon followed by proud grins!

SQUIGGLES TO GRINS is a 35-45 minute program where budding young artists interact with kids their own age in a fun and nurturing environment. In this non-threatening setting they begin to grow emotionally while developing their language and community skills. Parents, too have an opportunity to socialize with the other parents. It’s hard to tell who is having more fun!

*Caregivers also are invited to participate.

If you can Dream. You can Draw.

All programs put a strong emphasis on creating the right classroom environment.

Individual performance is greatly enhanced by a sense of safety and well-being. When students are in a safe and nurturing environment, they will thrive and creativity will flourish.

Art is all about feeling the freedom to take risks, to explore the unknown, to trust your own judgment.  Because when you are free to dream, you find the power to create.
