Fun with Art (4-6 Years)

This Art-focused group is great for a child who has limited experience with art activities or a child who loves art and needs extra support using materials. Each week children complete an art project--from setup, execution, to clean-up! Children are exposed to a variety of art materials such as paint, glue and sand, and practice school-based skills such as cutting, gluing, painting, and following multi-step directions. Additionally, this group incorporates fun, gross and fine motor and sensory play activities to build upon each week’s art project theme. Come join the Fun! Led by a licensed Occupational Therapist. Fee: $450 for 8-week series. **We bill insurance. Please inquire about our partnering insurance plans.
