WEE Arts Classes for Ages 5 and Under

Wee arts event

CMA’s WEE Arts Studio provides a dedicated, specially-designed, safe art and play studio for children who are mobile (around 1) to 5. Our special art stations and early learning professionals, all of whom are artists, nurture your child’s creativity, curiosity and developmental growth through a range of stimulating activities. Your children will explore and grow at their own pace, building confidence, vocabulary, gross and fine motor skills, and making new friends while having loads of fun!

3 - 4 Years (Drop Off)

It’s an arty party! In this class teaching artists will encourage socialization, verbal and visual skills while nurturing creative impulses. Students will create collaborative projects as well as individual creations that will be taken home at the end of each class. This is a great foundation for preschool!

4 - 5 Years (Drop Off)

This class introduces new materials through projects that are both individual and collaborative. Young artists will explore layering, textures, colors, and lines in a variety of mediums, including paint, modeling clay, and drawing while promoting imagination through story-telling and music. Through consistent art-play, their artistic progression will be enhanced over the course of the semester.
