"My 3.5 year old has been participating in virtual classes for 3 weeks and Miss Susie’s Messy Art class has been the most engaging and fun! THANK YOU!"
Messy Art & Music Class!
A super fun, very creative and engaging class.

Easy Tips For Set Up
FYI art "mess" really is easy to clean up.
Younger kids can sit in the high chair to do class. (= super easy clean up).
It's okay to let kids mess their hands, just keep paper towels or a damp hand towel handy to wipe off hands after art time..
Set up your art at any coffee or dinner table, or on highchair, or work on uncovered floor.
Avoid doing art over any rug or carpet.
Some kids wear a smock, or just have kids wear something okay to get paint on. ,
