Classes

Each children’s or toddler art class goes one step deeper into the never-ending world of creative possibilities to keep your child motivated and engaged. Throughout this journey, the children are challenged to work with a wide range of materials and techniques, both indoors and outdoors, while working in groups and often on small performances. The classes are designed to grow students’ motor skills, communication, problem-solving, confidence and self expression. Our unique children’s art studio in Leslieville, Toronto offers both indoor and outdoor art classes.

6 Months to 18 Months

In this class, babies and caregivers touch, feel, play, and enjoy discovering interesting corners, objects and materials the studio. We use music and songs to animate the babies, and we use pictures, shapes, and textures to invent new ways to play and bond.
