Little Artists

Little Artists is Back for summer! Join teacher Mia Adams as we explore our imaginations through music, art and play! These workshops are open to young friends ages 2 to 5 years.

Mia Adams, an early childhood educator, actress, singer and artist, is pleased as punch to be leading Little Artists classes this summer. Her classes draw from age old nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and her own made up material. Each week she inserts new ideas into a familiar outline, including explorations with finger play, imagination, poetry, rhythm,  music, vocal play, and body awareness. When she’s not teaching, you can find Mia singing, making collages, trying out her mermaid skills, searching second hand stores for treasures, or with her nose thoroughly ensconced in a good book.
