|"The Blue Dog"|
This class is no joke. It's two hours. If you're under seven years old, there is an hour and a half option within the "Art Experience" umbrella. There is also a "Budding Artists" class which is for 4-6 year olds which is also an hour and a half. An hour long Mommy & Me class goes on in another room during the Art Experience class too, so there are many options. I saw one mom drop her son off in the Art Experience while she went next door with his little sister to do a Mommy & Me. It's obviously very convenient in that way if you have more than one child. I know that sometimes it's hard to coordinate extra-curricular activities because you can't be all places with all kids at one time. But this way, there is the possibility you can all take the age appropriate class at the same time.
In this time slot, it's a big class. Big in a good way. It's really nice to see so many kids really interested and engaged in making beautiful art. There are approximately fourteen kids in this time slot. Ages range from five to eleven years old. I sat and watched for an hour and it seemed like most of the kids were around age seven or eight. I think E was the youngest and there were three girls that seemed like they might be nine to eleven years old. They were of all abilities, yet it all seemed to work. It was interesting- in this particular time slot it was mostly girls in the class. The last time I came with E, it was almost all boys and only one girl. I think it's probably a good mix overall.
