Help. Hope. Healing.

Studio 123

Studio 123 is the PROCESS BASED art class that we teach to Tiny Tykes Preschool, a division of Church Hill Activities and Tutoring.  We kicked off this week with watercolor and crayon resist explorations.  The children loved exploring the different mediums they can use and having freedom to create in any way they desired.  Learn more about Tiny Tykes and CHAT here.
