Theatre Explorers: Story-Time Drop-in (Winter)

February 21 - April 11, 2018

10:00am - 11:00am

Theatre Explorers: Storytime Drop-in

Drop-in each week! $5/family and includes all children under 5.

Join us for a brand new weekly program for the youngest theatre-makers under 5!

Designed as your child’s first theatre arts experience, young children explore, observe, question, and collaborate during child led and teacher guided learning opportunities. Interactive sessions for caregivers and children feature songs, stories, art-making and lots of hands-on sensory play inspired by a beloved picture book. Session begins with 30 minutes of circle time & guided creative play activities while remainder of class is a less-structured, hands-on sensory play and art-making investigation. Children will build confidence, communication, and social skills as they explore ideas through their senses and creative play!

Class sessions are designed and led by SST’s Creative Learning Director, Megan Flod Johnson who specializes in innovative arts programs for the very young and has been commissioned by children’s museums all over the country. Check out her work at meganflod.org. Megan is eager to share creative arts programs for early years at SteppingStone Theatre.

Winter Session is inspired by picture books with colorful creatures and characters! We’ll explore 4 weeks of Eric Carle’s colorful creatures and a final 4 weeks with Inside Out Socio-Emotional picture books.
