Drop In: Young At Art!
Our little ones are introduced to physical literacy, coordination, creative movement, and basic acrobatics skills in this fun program. We’ll explore acro dance skills like pike position, pre-cartwheel, plié, and tendu, locomotive skills (jumping, hopping, etc.), balance, movement concepts, and social skills. All levels are welcome.
Go beyond finger paint and crayons in this class for little hands where the focus is on exploration, fun, and creating a complete artsy mess—away from home! Playing with paint, glue, collage materials, and lots of offbeat and unexpected art supplies (even food!) puts kids in the driver’s seat and helps them develop creative confidence as well as important motor skills, coordination, language, and more. Join us and foster your child’s love of art. Caregivers are welcome to attend as per their child’s needs. Please have your child wear clothes that can get messy. Preregistration not required!
No class October 7 or November 11.
Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
