  • Art Brains Winter 2019

The ART BRAINS program moves far beyond the average arts and crafts hour, inspiring kids to think independently, creatively problem-solve, and expand on their ideas in an atmosphere of high imagination and empowered experimentation. We know that kids engaged in the arts gain academic and problem-solving ability, confidence, interpersonal skills and empathy, and our creative curricula are designed with these qualities in mind. Art Brains kids create within our thoughtful projects considering themes of science, history, anthropology, nature, story-telling and magic! They always experiment with a variety of materials, and will draw, paint, sculpt, build, write, and more in a single session. Some sessions include video, music, and performative projects too. Keep your kiddos' *art brains* warm and active this Winter! Students will: create their own moon rocks, design labyrinths imaginary creatures travel through with magnets, create “secret garden” box dioramas viewable through small peepholes, make Valentine candies for storybook characters, collaborate on planning and modeling imaginary cities, and more!

  • ASL--Sign Language

Our Beginner ASL Course will accommodate both new and previous beginner level students by including new beginner level material! Explore a new world of communication by learning American Sign Language (ASL)! ASL is the fourth most commonly used language in the U.S., and learning ASL can open new lines of communication between hearing and hearing impaired individuals. Additionally, studies have shown that learning the ASL signs for letters and words can help children with spelling and vocabulary skills. The students will learn the signs for basic vocabulary terms and sentences in a fun, child-friendly environment. Parents are invited to join us on the last day of class for a Parent’s Day demonstration.

The course is held in Room 118
