Art Sprouts

Art Sprouts is a fun story time and art making event for families with children ages 2 to 5 years. Adults and their children will explore works of art, move their bodies, read a book, and investigate objects and art materials. Choice-based studio activities extend the learning and fun.

All of these components are designed to not only inspire, but to also foster cognitive, fine, and gross motor skills, which are essential to child development. It’s also a great bonding experience for families!

To RSVP, contact Chelsea Farrar at or call (520) 621-9504.
