Toddler Art Classes

doodlebug offers a wide variety of toddler art classes for you and your little one Monday through Friday.  See what is available at www.sananselmorecreation.org under the "Tot Enrichment" tab.

My First Art Class (Ages 1.5-3)

My First Art Class is almost as much fun as your first taste of ice cream. It is designed as a parent-child collaborative class that is usually a favorite and is enriching for all participants involved. In the class, you and your child will explore different textures, scents, and colors together through a wide range of exciting (and safe!) mediums. We will learn about clay, paper-ripping, glue, different kinds of paint, pompoms, buttons and beads, fabric and yarn, and so much more.  

Toddler Art Lovers (Ages 3-5)

Playing with clay, painting surfaces from canvas to fabric, making mosaics and paper are just some of the activities we may share.  This will likely be a messy class that will focus on building your child's creative confidence.  We will be experimenting more, using new materials and techniques and finding opportunities for decision-making that will help each unique project reflect our growing creative spirits. We'll also spend some time allowing our young artists to come up with their own projects using a table full of colorful materials. 

My First Clay Play (Ages 2-4)

We’ll make clay, play with clay and create with clay.  We’ll experience the textures of various types of clay.  We’ll try tools, from rolling pins and popsicle sticks to sponges and, of course, our best tools of all – our hands.  We’ll also spend some time discovering what we can do with the things we make from clay – a mosaic or a mixed media sculpture and we’ll use ceramic paints and have some of our pieces fired in the kiln.  And, it goes without saying; we’ll get messy and have lots of fun.

Toddler Clay Play (Ages 3-5)

We’ll make clay, play with clay and create with clay.  We’ll experience the textures of various types of clay and we’ll experiment with the things we can do to and with our materials.  We’ll try tools, from rolling pins and popsicle sticks to sponges and, of course, our best tools of all – our hands.  We’ll also spend some time discovering what we can do with the things we make from clay – a mosaic or a mixed media sculpture and we’ll use ceramic paints and have some of our pieces fired in the kiln. 

Learning More About Paint (Ages 3-5)

We’ll add to our fundamental art experiences and learn to use different kinds of paint for a broader range of results. We’ll also do a fair amount of experimenting to find out the variety of ways we can control our materials and to discover the fun of playing around with paint.   Our work won’t just be on paper, we’ll use wood, paper Mache and fabric (for example) so we can see how many places paint can make a difference.
