A Budding PicassoArt activities that emphasize challenging a student's developmental level through multiple approaches and materials increase confidence in social, creative, and academic abilities. Kids boost fine motor skills as they cut, tear, and manipulate all sorts of art materials in this weeklong art exploration while developing spatial awareness in landscape drawings, still life paintings, and small sculptures. A large part of the week's class will focus on improving students' awareness of color as they paint scenes from stories, draw self-portraits, and build structures.

Yoga For KidsYoga comes to life in these fun and creative classes designed to expand students' minds and encourage wellness. Cooperative games, themed activities, storytelling, and music engage our children's natural energy and enthusiasm. Classes explore yoga poses, breathing exercises, visual imagery, and creative relaxation techniques while conveying lessons in self-expression, body image, and positive thinking. Partner poses and yoga games build positive peer interactions and social skills. This is a unique way for children to build skills they can carry into their everyday lives. This class is for children of all fitness levels.
