All materials, including old books, will be provided; in addition, you are welcome to bring any of your own photographs, letters, or other mementos you may wish to use.
Get up and get creative at our Toddler Art and Stories! These 20-30 minute programs are full of books, songs and art activities that are designed to help develop your child’s language and motor skills.

Process-oriented art focuses on what can be learned from the act of making art rather than the product.
