School Age Art


Young children learn and explore through their senses, and the experience and process is always the most exciting part of any art activity. In art, children can learn and explore through exciting and messy open-ended art materials. Little ones learn about colors, textures, and shapes while developing fine motor skills and expressing their creativity through unconventional and open-ended materials.

Classes include:

  • Ceramics (5-7 Years): Join us in the ceramics studio for this introductory class. Children will gain familiarity with clay and make artistic sculptures, bowls, and more.

  • Wearable Arts and Textile Design (7-10 Years): This class introduces children to the fun of fiber arts, including knitting, crochet, embroidery, hand-sewing, weaving, and much more. Young artists will spend time learning techniques for each material that they will then use to create one-of-a-kind accessories and artwork.

Help us continue to ensure accessible programming for everyone. Please support Children + Family programming at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
