For parents and children ages 3-5
This weekly drop-in program developed for children ages 3-5 invites participants and their adult to come to the MAG and create an art project lead by an Art Educator in our Stewart Discovery Studio.
Program runs 9:30-11 am Monday* mornings (September-June) *as of March 2023
Adults are free!
miniMAG art projects provide children the opportunity to work on fine motor skills such as grasp, strength, dexterity, and control.
Children have the opportunity to talk and increase their vocabulary. By working in a collaborative art setting, kids can learn to recognize and appreciate other people’s thoughts and work on carrying a back-and-forth conversation.
Being creative in the process of creating art allows children to develop creative and critical thinking skills. These skills create adaptability, leadership, and confidence in kids later in life.
When creating projects at miniMAG, children get a visual learning feast! Colours, shapes and composition are all things that kids can learn from, take in, and use to expand their understanding of the world around them.
It’s also just great fun to be able to go to a space where everything needed to create a great piece of art is supplied and you can spend time with your child, make new friends, and not need to worry about making a mess!
