Mini-Art Adventures

Claire's Creative Adventures

Kidz Tips
  • French may be added to any class
  • Song and stories included
  • Great for parent groups!

Mini-Art Adventures is where adult and child explore media and process side-by-side, learning age-appropriate skills, language and expectations. Drop-off available for early 3's.

The curriculum is responsive to the developmental needs of each age group, carefully tailored and ever changing to suit the children’s interests. Instead of pushing children through activities, they are given ample opportunity to be active collaborators in the design of their class. We use a wide range of interesting art materials such as clay, wire, eyedroppers, diverse painting tools and techniques (to name a few) allowing children to explore, identify and reinforce language, colors, shapes, numbers and language while practicing motor skills as well as appropriate art vocabulary in a fun and nurturing environment. Each class begins with our unique group collaborative mural, with items changing each week. Through all of our activities, our goal is to promote confidence through choice-making as well as the freedom of self-expression while applauding and encouraging each stage of development.  Come and join the fun!
