Music for Aardvarks provides a stimulating and fertile musical environment, positive role models, gentle guidance and encouragement so young children will have enriching and vital musical experiences that help them gain a sense of themselves and a connection to the world they live in.

Created by Kids

Created by Kids is excited to offer our ceramics class at the Dillon Center. The integration of art in a child’s development can advance creativity and imagination while refining important fine motor skills. Clay is an enthralling and tactile medium for children to express their artistic creativity. Students will learn basic skills in hand building pottery. We will introduce a new project or idea each class, presenting different building techniques the children can use as a starting point to create a piece of art that is all their own. Each student will go home with unique projects they will be proud of!
