Pre-Registration Option: If you’re a Theatre Explorers super-fan, and would like to register in advance, you have the option, below! With pre-registration, you receive up to 2 classes for free!
Designed as your child’s first Art experience, this class is hands-on and interactive! Children (5 and under) and their caregiver(s) join in 30 minutes of guided stories, songs, and introductory creative drama while the remainder of class is spent independently exploring hands-on creative play, art-making, and sensory stations. Your child will build confidence in working with new materials, communicating ideas with their voices and bodies, and deepening social skills as they explore ideas through their senses and creative play!
