Baby and Mommy/Daddy Kid'z Kraftz
Arts and crafts programs for our youngest artists.
Crafting develops toddler's and baby's fine motor skills, hand/eye coordination, and increases dexterity (plus it's just so much fun to get messy!!).
Our qualified and nurturing art teachers guide your creative mini genius through a variety of seasonal crafts that take place in the comfort of your child's daycare. We take care of everything so your son or daughter can craft without getting glue on your furniture!
Have you ever wanted to play with clay?!?! Well, now's your chance! During our hand-building classes, students will learn how to properly attach pieces, use ceramics tools to make a variety of different seasonal projects.
Once pieces are fully dried, they will be fired in kilns. Students will then be able to glaze (add color) to their pieces.
Possible projects are: a slab ring dish with coil foot and coil ring holder, a slab berry bowl with coil foot and handles, a slab mug with coil handle, a braided coil planter pot with drip tray, a pinch pot and coil teapot, a pinch pot animal candle holder, and a small coil platter.
No experience is needed for these classes. We have two different programs: One for kids ages 5 to 12, and another for teens and adults.
Yoga for youngsters
Yoga classes designed to help kids battle anxiety, bullying, and find focus. We combine Asana, yoga games, and breathing techniques to create a truly unique experience for the kids.

The classes were so successful that they have invited us back for another year. Open to K-5th grades
