MINI-SCRIBBLERS FOR 18MO-3YO W/PARENT
This 45-minute class is a great opportunity for parents to guide their toddlers through the exploration of materials perfectly suited to their innate interests.   They'll be drawing with special crayons that glide on the page, using stamps big enough for feet and hands, watercolors that vividly demonstrate color-mixing, glue that's easy to spread, fabric that's soft and bright in color, scissors that are easier to hold, and the list goes on and on.  We make it a priority to seek out the best art materials for our youngest artists!  Every material and project is carefully selected to complement the unique characteristics that define "toddlerhood".  $28 for a drop-in  /  $81 for 3 classes  /  $156 for 6 classes

7/9 at 10am:  FOOT PAINTING IS THE NEW FINGERPAINTING
Toddlers always find unique approaches to conventional activities. Paint with my hands? Why not with my feet?!? And yes, why not? This class encourages toddlers to think (and create) on their feet. SAVE YOUR SPOT!

7/16 at 10am: DRUM ROLL PLEASE....INSTRUMENT MAKING!
Toddlers are natural musicians...especially when they are using their own percussion instruments. We'll be making beautiful drums (which can also double as shakers).  SAVE YOUR SPOT!

7/23 at 10am: DRIP DROP & POUR ON CANVAS
Toddlers love to drip, drop and pour and in the art studio, this is totally welcomed! Your toddler will create his/her own original painting on canvas using only toddler techniques.  SAVE YOUR SPOT!

7/30 at 10am: RUBY RICE PAINTING: RICE IS NOT JUST FOR EATING
This class was inspired by our founder's niece, Ruby who helped us to discover that rice is indeed a painting tool. Want to see how it works? Incredibly well. Not to mention the fact that toddlers LOVE that tactile experience of the rice itself...painting with it is an added bonus!  SAVE YOUR SPOT!

8/6 at 10am: IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL KNOCK IT DOWN!
Toddlers love to build with blocks and knock them down! Well in this class their ephemeral building experiments will become sculptures. We'll be using wooden blocks, colored glue, and other 3-d found materials including pompoms, pipecleaners and our personal favorite: feathers!   SAVE YOUR SPOT!

8/13 at 10am: WATERCOLOR TRIPTYCH: 3 IS BETTER THAN 1
What's better than one beautiful watercolor painting created by your toddler? 3 of them hanging side by side! In this class, we'll explore brushstrokes & color mixing to create our own original hanging triptychs.   SAVE YOUR SPOT!

Scribble 4s 2012PRE-SCRIBBLERS | 3-4YO
This one-hour class is perfectly suited for the child who's not a toddler anymore but also is not quite ready for after-school. We'll explore all sorts of art materials much the same way we do in the Mini-Scribbler's classes but this time without mommy, daddy, or babysitter.  Collage, painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking with our artistic peers, oh my! We'll also begin to introduce themes such as animals, ourselves, objects, places, etc. As always, we'll also include an element of visual literacy (analyzing artwork or images).  All classes end with a daily art show where scribblers present their pieces to the class to discuss what they've created and how!  COMING THIS FALL

TOO COOL FOR PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAM | 3-4YO
This is a 3-hour pre-school alternative program that includes daily art, music and cooking classes!  For more information, visit Bread and Yoga & Scribble Art Workshop's shared site.
