Art Classes 3-5 year olds

Last month we stopped in to the newly opened Duck, Duck, Goose in Merchantville, NJ. Recently we started taking their 9:00 am Parent and Child Art Workshops Environmental Art Classs. I hear parents say all the time that they have no problem making a trip over the bridge if it is worth it. We have two classes under our belt and I like them enough that it is worth mentioning.
This class starts differently than any of his other classes. At the beginning of each class the instructor Nicole Eiland start the class by tell the children about that week’s theme. Everyone circles up and as Nicole goes into more detail she show them a quick slide show of various art work that relate to the theme. As a former art student I like that Henry is getting this type of process. From there the kids are off to create.
It is a great cozy environment where you are encouraged to hang out with your kids but let them do the “driving.” So far we have made a mobile out of drift wood which are proudly displayed in our livingroom and last week we did print by stamping vegetables which we have been using for birthday cards. Next week we are meeting down the street in a park to do a rock installation. The class is for 3-5 year olds and they kindly let Ollie do a drop in for the first class so the whole family could be together. But I do recommend you stick to the suggested ages for the class.
The class was $40 for 4 weeks or you can do a drop in for $10 (just call first: 856-488-6326). For me the 9:00 am start time is huge because we are early risers. I would take other classes at Duck, Duck, Goose based on my current experience. *They are shoeless at Duck, Duck, Goose so bring socks.
