Class projects tie into each student’s creativity with regular opportunities to collaborate and play for peers. All levels welcome! Small class size of 2-3 students will be formed based on levels of the students.

Little Artists allows children ages 5-7 to explore music and art in a cozy, engaging one-hour class. Led by Alison Notkin and Stéphany Hernandez, participants will spend 30 minutes singing and playing music, and 30 minutes exploring different visual art media, such as painting, drawing and sculpture. Each registration includes a supplies kit delivered to your home!
This exciting new class is designed for a small group (max. 8) of preschool-aged children with Autism (diagnosed and non-diagnosed). The class will incorporate music and basic movement activities with the goal of supporting leisure interests, social interaction, attention skills, knowledge development and communication.
Instruction will be given at a comfortable pace using gestures, visuals, changes in tone, props and instruments–making the class fun, engaging and easy to follow. To develop communication skills, participants will be encouraged to take an active part; to foster predictability, comfort and ease, songs will be repeated and will stay consistent from week to week; and, to allow for participants to process information and take as active a role as possible, frequent pauses will be built in to the session.
The class will be led by renowned special needs advocate and teacher, Karen Natho of ParaWell Play. Participants will receive a supplies kit prior to the start of the session.
Note: Parent / Caregiver participation required
