Mini Makers Open Studio
All ages welcome (Suggested 1-8 years) 10:00am-12:00 *Please note there are small parts in the studio and we ask that caregivers supervise children under 3 at all times.*
During Mini Makers open studio creative stations will be set up with open ended activities and materials. Ideas and techniques will be presented but children are encouraged to use their imagination. Support and gentle guidance will be offered but there will be no formal instruction. We encourage experiential learning, and persistent problem solving. Creativity is not exclusive to the arts and therefore during Open Studio we will also delve into STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics). Children are encouraged to explore the art and sensory materials freely; always focusing on the process of the experience. Come ready to have fun and learn right along side your little one. All our classes are designed to include exciting Art & Play experiences that will challenge each child’s imagination, fuel their creativity and help in strengthening developmental skills. Registration is required.
