Spring Break - Artsy Thursday

APRIL STAY-CATION – Artsy Thursday
Artsy Thursday is part of our week-long celebration of “The Week of The Young Child.”
Think, problem solve, create. Children develop creativity, social skills, and fine motor skills with open-ended art projects as they make choices, use their imaginations, and create with their hands. Art is a form of expression, sometimes it is easier for our children to show us through art how they feel. Come and explore your creative side!
10:00 – 10:30 Step into a Story : Let’s read “The Art Lesson” by Tomie DePaola
10:30 – SPECIAL GUEST executive director from Five Points Gallery, Judith McElhone, will bring her talent to KidsPlay. She will introduce, encourage and teach us that we ARE artists. Children and caregivers will explore human form. After, join Judith in a FREE walking field trip to her gallery only a block from KidsPlay to discover artist that use human form in their artwork. This is a great opportunity!
We encourage all to take part in this special tour!
