December News from YBS!
We are wrapping up the year with some of our favorite classes for your young artist!
Small Worlds Workshop: Gingerbread House for Little Elves
In our instant gratification world, patience and working hard for a worthy goal are in short supply, especially for children, which is why we created this special class for preschoolers and their caregivers. Kids love to play with little "people and animals" in worlds that they create from their imagination. When you create these worlds together, you are not only creating memories of good times together, but you are also teaching them the value of problem solving, creativity, and patience as the "worlds" take 4 weeks to finish. Our next session starts on your choice of Tuesday, December 3 or Wednesday December 4, and registration ends midnight tonight! Because of the winter holidays, we will not meet the weeks of 12/24-25 or 12/31-1/1 and our last class will be 1/7-8. Registration is online!
Friday Art Night on December 6th
Our last Art Night of the year is this Friday from 6:30-9! We will be setting up different arts and crafts inspired by the season. This is a drop-off event for children Pre-K through 5th grade. Cost is $25 per child, $15 per additional child. Registration is online!
Art in the Park Starts January
We are offering a new Thursday class starting January 9 to January 30 from 10:30-12 for preschoolers called Art in the Park that will focus on developing nature awareness skills through stories, games, puppets and hiking and using that as inspiration for some process art projects. This class is led by Ms Florie, who holds a Florida Master Naturalist certificate from UF and will educate the adults as well on our Florida habitats while she introduces it to the little ones in a hands-on way. This class is great for caregivers who love to be outdoors with their children and meet others who do as well! We will meet rain or shine, cold or hot, so come dressed in layers and wear sturdy shoes! The schedule of parks we will be visiting are:
January 9: Lettuce Lake Park
January 16: Meddard Park
January 23: Al Lopez Park
January 30: Philippe Park (Pinellas County).
