Sprout Yoga:  Open to 2K, 3K, 4K, & Kindergarten     Welcome to Little Yoga Sprouts of Charleston!  The approach to our kid’s yoga program is to make it fun while teaching the three B’s of yoga: Brain (focus), Body (poses), and Breath (relaxation and energizing techniques). We believe in the power of yoga to promote overall health, peace, confidence, and joy in children. We bring this belief and commitment to our kid’s yoga program through the use of music, dance, storytelling, and the implementation of props that keep the children enthralled in the lessons. Exercise for a healthy life begins at an early age and should be FUN!

FRIDAY CLASSES:

Wee Little Arts:  Open to 3K, 4K, & Kindergarten     Wee Little Arts is a visual arts curriculum for young children.  Using art history and age appropriate children’s literature, students are exposed to a wide range of visual art concepts.  Vocabulary, use of materials, discussion, imagination and creation are only some of the wonderful things the children are exposed to.  Each session builds upon the previous session, focusing on the process that creates the Masterpiece!

During 2nd semester, students are introduced to a range of painting techniques, both representational and abstract, and a variety of materials while creating work based on their imagination and environment. The creation of mixed-media pieces will also be explored, ensuring some exceptional work!  Furthermore, in this session, students will use a modeling material to transition from working in two dimensions to create three-dimensional projects. Physical manipulation of the modeling material introduces advanced spatial relationship and motor skills. Other materials may be used as students create their own sculptures to encourage greater understanding of height, width, depth and texture.  Supply Fee: $39.

 Find out more at www.weelittlearts.com.  Follow us on Facebook AND Instagram!  Smocks are provided, but children are encouraged to not wear their best clothes to art.  Melissa Bradshaw, Founder and teacher:  843-345-8174
