Play-Based creativity workshops  ~  Ages 2-5 yrs
instructor - michelle wilkinson (bed)

Exploring creativity through play-based activities allows children to investigate, think, invent, take risks, problem solve, make choices, and be imaginative. These workshops are designed to not only allow children to freely explore all of those areas but also to expose them to a variety of tools and materials for creating while also developing early childhood skills such as communication, fine motor, and social skills.  

Each 1.5 hour workshop will consist of two parts: a play-based activity or invitation using open-ended materials from the studio collection and a make-and-take project exploring a variety of mediums, tools, and techniques each week. Children will be given the supplies and creative freedom to interpret the project as they wish. The focus for these workshops is PROCESS NOT PRODUCT.  

Parents are expected to stay with their child for these workshops to help foster a positive, creative environment. As a parent in the studio, it is your job to be open to all the wonderful possibilities and ideas your child may imagine for their project. If you wish to bring a snack/drink for your child, we will have a small break in between activities.

baby art ~ 6 - 24 months
instructor - michelle wilkinson (BEd)

For the the very tiniest artists, join us for BABY ART. Let your little one explore creativity for the first time in this fun parent/baby painting class. This is a great way for moms, dads and caregivers to bond with baby while having a fun sensory experience!

In this 1 hour class you and your babe will get to create a painting together. Babies will explore painting with paint brushes, sponges, stamps, and other materials. We will have the studio set up so that our babes can work on the floor. We will also have a toy area with some sensory toys for them to play with and explore.

We will be painting on large watercolour paper (18x24) with taste safe paints coloured with food-grade colouring, so if/when your baby decides to taste that paint… no worries, mama!

Make sure you pack an extra change of clothes, as this one is going to be MESSY, but OH. SO. FUN!
