Storytime Art

Fridays at 10:45Story and art project is a perfect pre-nap time activity

Storytime Art, or StArt! is a great opportunity for your young child to experience art! Storytimes are geared to the 3 – 5 year old preschooler, but some projects could easily translate into a Mommy and Me project for those a little younger. And, of course, anyone older is welcome, as well! Storytimes always include at least one book and a related art project, but often include surprises like songs, poems, and coloring pages.

Cost is $12 per child, or buy a punch-card and get 6 classes for $60! Please call to register.
