Budding Artists,
Come Grow With Us!

Our Seedlings Group

Children ages 2 through 5 can join our Budding Artists programs as a member of Tots, Sprouts, Seedlings, or Music & Movement. Our Budding Artist branch introduces the preschooler, in a nourishing climate, to the arts. Music, movement, and visual arts are the focus. Formal dance instruction for ages younger than 6 years old does more to damage and stress the young body and mind than to develop their abilities. Our classes help direct the young child's natural urge to move actively by an experienced staff of preschool educators and professional artists.

All children deserve to experience the delights of childhood in an atmosphere rich in the arts. Enrichment classes for ages 2-5 offer a broad based arts experience in music, movement and visual arts in a creative and nurturing environment where the child can express himself freely.

  • Arts and education programs for all ages
