Awakening Minds Art in downtown Findlay is offering Sensory Explorers, a new art class for toddlers. The class helps children learn through art, acquiring skills such as color and shape recognition, following directions, and listening skills, while at the same time having fun and getting creative.
The class has two aspects – guided instruction, where the teacher leads the children through a project, followed by a second activity where the students have a bit more independence to create on their own. There is also sensory play tied in, using unique styles and media.
AMA Program Director Megan Hall shared, “It’s a great way for them to get out of the house with mom or dad, grandma or grandpa and do something together.”
The class is open to children ages 1-5, letting the parent determine whether the child can handle a one hour class. Caregivers must stay to help the students complete the projects. Classes are $10 each and take place Thursdays from 10:30-11:30am. No prior registration is necessary. A loyalty card is available so that frequent artists can attend five classes and get a sixth class free.
