Science is so cool! Kids enjoy real, hands-on investigation and experiments about the science all around them, from air pressure to water flow, from magnets to our solar system. Curiosity leads to industry as we also explore simple machines, tools, building, and how to make things happen! Sometimes our projects and experiments go home, so your kids can teach you a new thing or two!
(OFFERED SPRING/SUMMER SEMESTER ONLY) Sun shines, waves crash, children play, Color Splash! Come along on this creation-vacation as we make beautiful summer souvenirs with paint, collage, and sculpture. Water tables and sand trays make for indoor “beach” play without the sunscreen or traffic!
A creative mind is a problem-solving mind! Young investigators will explore how things work and what happens when art, science, and engineering meet at the intersection of messy and magical. Hands-on opportunities with paint and putty, magnifiers and magnets, blocks and builders, and everything in between help us learn about the world around us and all its mysteries!
Dress for mess and artistic success! Young children are free to smear, squeeze, splatter and otherwise explore artistic possibilities in our sensory play bins, writing tables, and giant paper painting for fun that is too big to try at home. Storybook sharing inspires new ideas and creativity as children work with a variety of materials that include paints, doughs, crayons, chalk, and collage. Get ready for a messy good time!
My Masterpiece combines all the fun of My Big Messy Art Class, with some added technique and style for 3 year olds.

Each week results in a new masterpiece inspired by classic artists - this class will have your refrigerator gallery ready for visitors!
