As your budding artist transitions from making creative messes to wanting to create a masterpiece, let us do the dirty work for you. We encourage your child to explore materials, enhance art skills, and build confidence.
Free Kids’ Art
Free creative exploration every morning at 10AM – we open up the art room and let kids have access to finger painting, stamping, water play, and other sensory fun. Parents help facilitate the fun. Give your child a chance to get messy!
Great for all ages. As long as kids are pulling up, they can create!
Not quite an art class, not quite free play, this type of art exploration is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. Click here to find out why.
Free with admission: Weekdays at 10AM
When given a chance to create works of art in Mini Monets, children grow in a way that is unlike anything else. There are cognitive growth, improvements in fine motor skills, and enhancements in critical thinking. Give your preschoolers the chance to expand their creative horizons as they learn about color, value, shapes, sculpture, collage, and more. Classes are 30-40 minutes long and include 15 minutes of play in the Tmuffin playspace before or after class.
*Payment of class fee will secure your spot in the program. If registration is canceled prior to session start date, session fee will be refunded. Please pay with cash or check at Tmuffin. Session fee not refundable after session begins.

Creative Preschooler Program
Not ready for preschool but looking for a little routine and enrichment for your kiddo (and some time to yourself)? Drop off your child for this 2-hour program 2 days a week. Each day, your child will experience art and music lessons with the same kids in an enriching environment. Our learning philosophy incorporates a little bit of Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia approaches to education; your child will learn about art, science, nature, culture, storytelling, and more.
A Typical Day in the Life of the Creative Preschooler:
9:45-10:00 – Arrive at Tmuffin, circle/story time in the reading room.
10:00-10:30 – Sensory play in the art room or Music in the music room.

10:45-11:15 – Art lessons in the art room.
11:15-11:45 – Guided free play in the playspace. (*Weekly themes will guide the free play. Depending on the theme, we may play at the market and learn about money and bartering; we may learn about up and down on the jungle gym; we might play a game or go on a scavenger hunt*)

You know all of those creative good intentions you have? You know–the ones that are all over your Pinterest page. When were you planning on actually getting to them? You can wait until the kids go to sleep, but it’s no fun getting crafty all by yourself. Show Martha Stewart who’s boss and come to a Mom’s Night Out.
All supplies and materials are provided.
Mom’s Nights Out will begin again when we open our new location in the spring 2013!
See below for examples of what we’ve done in the past.
Make a scarf, necklace, headband, or child’s smock from upcycled T-shirts.
Transform unfinished wooden toys into colorful Montessori- and Waldorf-inspired creations.
