Kiddy Art for Toddlers 2-5yrs – Term 2, 2018 starts April 16th
Creative exploration and art play is essential in a young child’s development. It offers them an outlet for self expression as well as opportunities to tap into their precious imagination. Creative activities challenge their developing fine motor skills and coordination and engage their sensory awareness. Talking about colours, textures and shapes all contributes in a young child’s understanding of the world around them.
Our Kiddy Art program is specifically designed to engage and delight toddlers 2-5yrs. Each week, a new exciting project is presented to give your toddler the opportunity to enjoy a huge range of materials and process. Explore colours, shapes, textures and processes like painting, collage, construction, textiles and so much more. Make things for your walls, to hang in your room and crafts that your child can interact with at home in imaginary play long after the class is finished.
Kiddy Art is a wonderful time to spend working together with your child, watching their creative flair evolve and their confidence grow. Seeing the pride that they take in their creations and their excitement to show their art off is priceless!
Bring your child to Kiddy Art to do what they do best – touch, do, make, explore, discover and enjoy. Art Class will be the highlight of your child’s week!
“We have been coming to Kiddy Art for almost a year, and it really is the highlight of Ruby’s week. I have loved watching her creativity and skills develop during the art classes, and now I just sit back and watch her doing everything on her own, which she is so proud of. She can’t wait to find out what she will be making each week and all the activities are spot on to engage and excite her. Kiddy Art is by far her favorite activity (and mine!)” Nicole, mum of Ruby 3 yrs
