Winter Classes Have Begun

Hello everyone,

Winter session has begun and some classes are still open if you'd like to register your child for the remaining weeks. We also offer School's Out Camps that run from 9-3:30 during selected holidays. (MLK Day still has space!) Can't commit to a class? We have Family Drop-In every Saturday and Family Workshops on selected weekends.

There are some new classes, and I have had the pleasure of beginning one for our youngest students yet: Colored Textures for ages 18 to 30 months. It has been a complete joy to get to know these wee artists as well as the friends and family members who accompany them. In these adult/child classes it is so important that the adults guide the children in their exploration, and they have been doing a really wonderful job of allowing their children to explore and create for themselves. I will be posting photos soon! We have also begun some new classes for teens and starting in Spring we will be offering multiple classes on Friday evenings. If you have a teen that wants a class sooner than the Spring you can start a custom class with 5 or more students.

I am happy to announce that Lillstreet has begun sponsoring a Meetup Group for the Lillstreet and neighborhood community. It is absolutely free to join and we've already scheduled two art playgroups here at Lillstreet for group members. There is a message board where you can post and read threads regarding ways to bring art and creativity into your home. I'm personally very excited about this because I have had such a great experience with my neighborhood's Meetup Group. It really is a wonderful way to connect with other parents with similar interests- I hope you'll join us!

Best wishes,
Melanie Brown
Kidstreet Program Director
