Grades 2-6, please join us for our final Art School Art session of 2014!
On Wednesday afternoon, December 10th, at 4:30 pm we will be designing and creating our own nutcracker paintings. We will learn about the history and traditions of nutcrackers in Germany and the United States, view some amazing examples, and then get to work on our original art. This lesson will help introduce us to the concept of symmetry ... and it will also be super fun!
Not many people know about the secret part of Santa's team. Local author Cynthia Dreeman Meyer shows us what really goes on the night before Christmas in her book, “Merry Stirring Mice,” a delightful turnaround on the claim “not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” The book reading will be accompanied by a fun sing-a-long with Miss Cynthia, who is also a preschool music and movement teacher.
Our presenter Ms. Marianne, who runs an Edible Art company, will be bringing us a special Candy Land program on Monday, December 1st at 6:30 pm.
Children ages 7 and up will make their own Candy Land boards -- including trails and characters! -- out of foam, marshmallows, Sour Patch Kids, and assorted candies. Ms. Marianne will provide all the materials and instruction ... you just bring your creativity!
This program has been canceled and will be rescheduled over the winter. Thank you for your understanding!
On Saturday, November 29th at 10:00 am, we are hosting our first-ever Family Digital Scavenger Hunt. Children ages 3 to 8 will work with their families to solve clues, find the items in the hunt, and snap pictures. Any phone or tablet will work fine for this (and we have iPads you can use, too). Everyone takes home prizes!
Ages 3 and up, please join us on Monday evening, November 24th, at 6:30 pm for a Thanksgiving Storytime. We will read stories about the upcoming holiday -- and about being thankful! -- sing some songs, act a little silly, and make our own turkey craft to take home. It will be a fun time!
