In one child's hand, a tiny tambourine jangles along to a song while another child claps to the rhythm. It's not an uncommon sight at any of MusicalMe's educational classes, where kids up to age 6 express themselves through music. And parents are encouraged to stay and have fun, whether by helping littler participants along or by ripping a mean solo during a kazoo jam session. With classes holding up to 14 students, each child gets a significant amount of attention and guidance as they learn to appreciate melody and rhythm and learn to love making music.
Drawn2Art strives to teach children the skills to draw, paint, and create three-dimensional art realistically. Whether drawing, painting, or sculpting, kids learn Drawn2Art’s visualization techniques that allow them to break down subjects into simpler, easier-to-create pieces. This results in a gallery of impressive student artwork that ranges from silhouettes and fruit to household pets, flowers, and seaside landscapes.
