In this art and sensory class, children will experience textures, movement and sound. Led by a music therapist and teaching artist, the classes provide a great opportunity to explore art concepts and ideas in a fun and safe way. Children will create unique designs using a variety of recycled materials including cardboard, feathers, leaves, cork, bubble wrap, yarn and more. As they engage their senses and build communication skills, they will also learn about the importance of preserving the environment that surrounds them.
