Taught by Private Picassos, budding toddler artists will explore paint, crayons, oil pastels, collage materials, air-dry clay, and recycled sculpture in this process-oriented art class. Themes for projects include NYC, outer space, animals, opposites, and much more. This curriculum is a great introduction to a structured class for young artists and will help strengthen their fine motor skills and ability to represent the world around them.

The class will take place on 78th Street in Riverside Park.

8 Thursdays, Apr 15-Jun 3

- There will be temperature checks upon arrival.
- An emphasis will be placed on hand hygiene before and during programming.

Upon arrival at class:
