Spark a love for art and language and build good reading habits. Each session begins with the instructor reading aloud a quality illustrated children's book, rich with age-appropriate vocabulary. After talking about the book, children visit an artwork that builds on the book's themes, bringing the story to life while also helping children develop meaningful connections to art. A hands-on project related to the story and artwork ties it all together.

If you're a budding writer, or wish you were, this is the class for you! Find inspiration in the art you'll see and use the art of writing to express yourself. Learn how to look closely at a work of art, listen carefully to other writers, give and receive constructive feedback, and develop your writer's voice. You will receive a weekly at-home assignment and be invited to share your work with the group. For the first class, bring a short piece of original writing. It may be a poem, story, comic strip, essay, or personal account about writing. This is a great opportunity to prepare a story to submit to Story Pirates, visiting the Robert and Magrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. Click here for more information.
