Fall is right around the corner, and with older kids going back to school soon, it’s a great time for the parents to keep youngest kids’ minds developing and little hands busy with fun classes. This fall, the Bonifas Arts Center is offering toddler and preschool art and music classes in a playful and stimulating environment for young kids to grow as creative, unique individuals.
Bonifas Toddler Art Classes
Join the Bonifas for creative play activities and music fun in the Toddler Art Classes, taught by Lorne Watson, a professional musician and teacher. These classes combine fun and learning to nurture imagination, assist in problem solving and help develop motor skills. Art stations and music provide hands-on activities in these classes.
The fee for toddlers (mobile to age 3) and their caregivers is $5 per day or $32 for the seven-week session. Registration is due by Friday, Sept. 7 with the classes being held from 9:30-10:15 a.m. on the following Thursdays: Sept. 13, 20, 27, Oct. 4, 11, 18, and 25, and the second session being held on Nov. 1, 8, 15 and 29 (skips Thanksgiving), and Dec. 6, 13, and 20. Please note the 30 minute time change for this class from last spring.
New Preschool Art and Music Workshop
In addition, a new workshop, also taught by Lorne Watson, offers a guided and joyful experience in the Bonifas Gallery for preschool-aged children and their caregivers. Young artists will explore layering, textures, and colors in varied mediums such as paint, clay and drawing. Their imaginations will grow through individual and collaborative projects based in art-play, storytelling and music. This class meets for a six-week session on Thursdays, Sept. 13, 20, 27, Oct. 4, 11, and 18 from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m.
The preschool art and music workshop is for students age 4 – 5 with an adult, and costs just $45 for the entire Session. Registration is due for each class by Sept. 13. This is not a walk-in class and space is limited, so please register in advance. To register for the toddler or preschool classes, contact the Bonifas at 906-786-3833 or use the link above.
