My 4 year old loves her classes here
My 4 year old loves her classes here. Classes are 90 minutes, give me some quiet time and you get some nice art projects to keep or gift away to the grandparents. There is a good variety of painting, sculpture, cut and paste. The children learn about colors and shapes, and develop listening and eye hand skills.
