Art and Activity Classes in Wilmington

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.

First Art for Toddlers

This instructor-guided art experience is ideal for one and two year olds. We’re exploring art freely — just the way a toddler is meant to. The best part? Parents get to sit back and observe without giving directions.

Free with admission: Wednesdays at 11AM

Montessori Mondays

This program introduces kids and parents both to the Montessori method. Kids will participate in a few Montessori activities, and parents will learn more about incorporating Montessori activities into daily life. Parents and kids are encouraged to attend consecutive sessions.

The class is ideal for children ages 3-6, but parents of younger children may sit in on the class as well. We will encourage a quiet, focused atmosphere throughout the class, so parents–make sure your child is ready to stay in class throughout the 45-minute session.

We are not currently holding this class, but are excited about reintroducing it. Please contact us to be put on a waiting list if you’re just as excited.

Mini Monets

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.

Ages 2-4

*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.
