Do you want to inspire a lifelong love of reading and creative expression in your child? Join us for a new, six-week session of our award-winning Start With The Arts program, made just for young children!

Start With The Arts for Families is a six-week-long program in which young children engage in process-focused, open-ended, arts-based activities, coupled with the reading of high-quality children’s literature. Our new online format offers a chance for caregivers to deepen their relationship with their children while connecting with other families, all with guidance from a skilled teaching artist.

The program meets once per week via Zoom. Each lesson begins with a read-aloud of a children’s book followed by a simple and fun art activity. Books and art supplies will be provided to participants at no cost via no-contact pick-up or shipping.

This series is designed for children ages 2-5 and their parents or caregivers. If you are a childcare provider interested in Start With The Arts, please reach out to Peggy Rainville, peggy@inclusiveartsvermont.org, for more information.
