    Pre-K Music and Art

    Come play with us! You and your child get to share this time, singing, playing instruments, and exploring in the art studio together! You’ll spend half the class making and sharing music together and half the class getting messy creating art! The active songs, open-ended activities and free exploration we provide are ideal for fostering the natural curiosity of preschoolers. Parent/guardian attends class with the child. Instruction in Russian and Spanish available for some classes.
