Toddler Class

   

Artists & Crafts (Toddler Edition) is a 45-minute child/caregiver class for children ages 20 months - 4 years old. We will expose your child to famous artists and encourage them to create their own masterpieces.

Each week we focus on a famous artist, create an age-appropriate craft highlighting that artist, and expose your little one to a new art technique. We keep things moving with songs, books, play-doh time, and a color of the day each week. Plus, at the end of each class your child will make a greeting card that you can mail to a loved one. (Grandparents love this!)

 

A short breakdown of our class can be found here.  You can read more about how this class began here. And you can click here to watch a short video of some of our past art projects.

 

Pre-school Class

Artists & Crafts (Pre-school Edition) is an in-school program.  Once the children finish their regular school day we come in with fresh energy and an exciting lesson.  Each week we focus on a new artist, reading a book and giving everyone a chance to share their answer to that week's "artist question of the day."  We jump right into the art project and allow them to create however they are inspired because our motto is "You Are The Artist."  Once they are finished we have some free-play play-doh time where we introduce a different technique each week.

If you are interested in adding our curriculum to your pre-school please email jac@lovejac.com

Elementary School Class

Artists & Crafts (Elementary School Edition) is a hands-on after-school program with elevated curriculum.  We highlight a new artist each week and the students create a multi-step art project inspired by that artist.  Students have the opportunity to experiment with new art techniques and log them in their very own art journal.  We keep students engaged with artwork bingo, songs, dance breaks, and plenty of conversation around the artist.
