Mess it Up I is more than just an art class for toddlers. We combine sensory play, science concepts, and messy process-oriented art to give your child a hands-on experience. This class will develop independence, decision-making skills, and creativity. Classes include teacher directed free play to allow all children to learn in their own way. Each class is based on a simple, accessible theme and includes a group activity or story related to this theme, followed by a project that is always optional. This class is for active and curious toddlers and sitting still is never required! This class is taught by Kids at Work owner Julie!
Mess it Up II combines sensory free play, group and solo science experiments, storytelling, and simple process-oriented projects in order to create a rich learning experience for all children. Thematic elements are incorporated such as nature, seasonal themes, stories, construction, and transportation. Children will develop verbal, problem solving, and classroom skills while having lots of messy fun! This class is taught by Kids at Work owner Julie!
Mess it Up III Ages 2.75 - 5 years (great for siblings!)
Mess it Up III aims to bridge the gap left by preschool programs that commonly do not allow for enough sensory free play and messy, large scale art experiences, which children of this age still desperately crave and need in order to understand the world around them. Children will be given unlimited amounts of time to 'work' on individual and group projects that revolve around a weekly theme such as dinosaurs, floating/sinking, astronomy, artistic techniques and individual artists. Interesting materials will be used that would be impossible in a regular preschool classroom such as plaster of paris, dry ice, and paper mache. Classes are taught by an experienced art educator with at least 2 years of experience working with this age group. This class is held in our large sunlit space and active and curious children are invited to join us!
