Art Classes

Thursdays at Turn Park


To reserve your child's space please send his or her name,
age, and contact info for accompanying adult to:

Space is limited to 6 children
per class. 

Accompany your preschooler to a morning of joyful creative expression and exploration of materials at Turn Park Art Space
in West Stockbridge.

We will begin our time in a gathering circle with music, movement, song and story.

Each week we will have hands-on experiences with wonderful materials and time to share personal inspiration and vision.

The creation of art encourages children to keenly observe with sharpened senses, articulate important ideas and construct knowledge with words and imagery.

Imagination and inspiration are sparked in a loving and safe environment that celebrates discovery amongst a community of friends.

Stay after to wander our beautiful trails and picnic in the fields!
