9/22/2016 - Hello, Art! Fine Art for Preschoolers starts on September 22/23, 2016

The Jewish Federation of Western CT is pleased to announce the launch of a new weekly art program open to all area children ages 3-6. The program, titled "Hello, Art!", is offered this fall for a 12 week session with classes held on Thursdays from 2:15-3:00 or Fridays from 1:30-2:15 at 444 Main Street North in Southbury. Interested families sign up for the day of their choice. Classes begin September 22/23 and end with an art show to celebrate on December 15/16.

Completely different than the typical preschool art, this program will offer an introduction to fine art concepts for the younger child. Our hands will get dirty as we dive into a variety of art projects including collage, weaving, painting on canvas, mixed media, pastels, water colors, hand sewing (no sharp needles) and much, much, more! The focus of this class is on the process of art; it is less concerned with the final product (although those final products are often beautiful!)

Instructor Rachel Drago has over 8 years of experience teaching art to young children. With the basic belief that all children are capable, intelligent and curious, she enjoys helping every child gain confidence in their own ability to create. In speaking of the class, Drago says "The end of session art show is always a very special occasion for students. The pride they exude as they describe their work to interested adults and peers is wonderful. Every child deserves that chance!"

This fall the class is being offered at the introductory rate of $120 for the 12 week session. Class size will be limited to 8 students. Make-ups are available with permission from the instructor. Children must be potty trained and dressed for a mess! To register, contact 203-267-3177, x340
