Check out our new Chugim schedule below…
Open Studio Juniors
Children (ages 4-6) explore the world of art through hands-on learning about color, texture, shape, line and composition in an English-speaking environment (suitable for all levels). We work in various art media and combine materials in new ways which develop fine motor skills. Children build confidence, make their own decisions about their artwork. We specialize in turning our “Oops!” into “a Beautiful oops!” Aside from safety, we only have one rule: Children can’t ask; “Is this good?” or “Am I done?”
ABC’s Through Baking & Art
Children create & eat their way through the English alphabet. We will introduce each letter & build our own personal ABC books which will become filled with our photographs, artwork and recipes. Children will learn how to form letters, identify sounds and sort by word families and blends. Ages, 4-8.
