April Stay-cation - Artsy Thursday
Spring Break - "The Week of The Young Child."
Think, problem solve, create. Children develop creativity, social skills, and fine motor skills with open-ended art projects where they can make choices, use their imaginations, and create with their hands. Art is a form of expression, sometimes it is easier for our children to show us through art how they feel versus with their words. Come and explore your creative side!
Highlights of the day :
10:00 - 10:30 Step into a Story : Let's read "The Art Lesson" by Tomie DePaola
10:30 - SPECIAL GUEST executive director from Five Points Gallery, Judith McElhone, will bring her talent to KidsPlay. She will introduce, encourage and teach to inspire all of us to discover that we ARE artists. After, join Judith in a FREE walking field trip to her gallery only a block from KidsPlay. This is a great opportunity!
We encourage all to take part in this special tour!
11:30 - Kids On Stage: Lets share "The Art Lesson" by Tomie DePaola. Can you sing? Me neither! But we will use our best singing voices to sing and dance to "Color Outside the Lines" by Les Julian.
3:00 - KidsPlay Fashion Show : Show off your creations!
All day - Maker Space Challenge : Art isn't limited to paper, art can also be clothing! Design your own t-shirt, dress, accessories, and more to put on display in a KidsPlay fashion show.
