A child's mind is like silly putty: super moldable, bouncy as a rubber ball, and capable of absorbing newsprint under the right conditions. Impress a growing brain with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a summer-day-camp class at YaYaBee in Fredericksburg (a $30 value). Day camp goes from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from June 6–10; June 20–July 1; July 11–August 5.
Housed in a soft-yellow and wood-frame abode, YaYaBee teaches young minds to recognize their strengths and skills through art and other creative endeavors. In classes for kids ages 2–15, artistic apprentices go elbow deep into a hands-on creative carousal. Nonneatniks revel in the muddy melee of pottery classes, and penny-finding pipsqueaks learn to incorporate their found treasures into mantle-worthy material in recycled-art classes. Photography instruction teaches eaglets methods for sharing their mental polaroids, which can often jam in the ear canal. Other classes include learning sewing in textile art and embracing tiny inner Pollacks in messy art.
