Fall Programs for Children and Family

Play Town Creators @ Play Town Square, Mt. Lebanon PA

A brand new art program that I’ve developed with the owners of Play Town! This incredible play space is located in the heart of Uptown Mt. Lebanon and the class has an option to include discounted play for Little Learners.

Little Learners Series, Ages 1 – 5 (Pre-Kindergarten)

September 25 – November 13, 8:45am – 9:30am

Let the littles take the lead while young children and their grown-ups work side by side to explore the natural world through art. Paint, print and collage flowers and seasonal landscapes and take home display ready artworks. Build confidence and develop skills like problem solving in your early learner as we introduce concepts like color mixing and shape recognition.

Elementary Learners, Ages 5 and older

September 25 – November 13, 4:00pm – 4:45pm

Kids starting at the age of five can come to us after school to explore fine art processes like printmaking and sculpting. We’ll examine artists past and present that look outdoors for inspiration and utilize experimentation, problem solving, and the elements of art to create unique artworks of our own.

Studio Make, McMurray PA

I will be facilitating Studio Make programming on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning in September. You NEED to check out their Play Groups and maybe I’ll see you there! Learn more about this new creative space here.
