Messy Makers



The best messy playdate you’ve ever had. Minus the cleanup.

Class Description
Messy Makers engages little ones by encouraging artistic play, curiosity and experimentation. Inspired by the Reggio-Emilia approach, children will participate in the creative process while being exposed to age-appropriate materials. Each week brings different adventures and themes, with stations where young artists can take part in art and sensory-play along with a group project and story time.

This is a process-focused class where it is all about the making of the art, not the product. Messy Makers nurtures each child’s creative potential in a supportive and creative environment. Be prepared to get messy and have fun!
