Little Builders  (ages 3-5)

Inspired by the early childhood principles of Reggio Emilia, open-ended building materials selected to explore the creatures and landscape of lakes, rivers, and the sea form the basis of this playful class for preschoolers.  Hanging fabric panels create soothing underwater caverns and provide hiding places for treasures gathered from a shipwreck.  Painted cardboard pieces are arranged so sea creatures created by children can go in/out,  up/down, around and through the water.  

Children will sing, play simple musical instruments, recite rhymes, engage in movement activities, use art materials to express what they see and hear, play with simple props and costumes, create designs and buildings with blocks, shells, sticks, rocks, and other found materials, as they enjoy spending time learning about the world by building relationships with other children, adults, interesting objects, and ideas.  

Parents come for 15 minutes of sharing time at the end of each class.

Mondays, 10-11:30 am, Aug. 3, 10, 17, 24 & 31    Cost: $50/full session; $15/per class

Classic Tales: The Little Mermaid (ages 5-8)

Join us as we explore this beloved story of Ariel, the brave and resourceful child-woman of the sea who not only falls in love with a handsome prince but also the idea of becoming a human being. Hans Christian Andersen’s original story as well as favorite Disney songs and scenes will inspire our playful work with images of life as a mermaid using the Classic Tales multi-arts approach to guiding children’s experience with literature in a classroom rather than stage environment. After reading each tale aloud, we work as a group to express the story dramatically. We arrange props and simple scenery, choose costumes from the collection, use speech and song to tell the story and move expressively to instrumental music for processions, dances and other plot elements. Parents watch the final minutes of each class to view our work.

Mondays, 4-5:15 pm, Aug. 3, 10, no class 8/17, 24, & 31 Cost: $40/full session; $15/per class
