Art for Tots held monthly at the Canvas

Lauren Stichert helps her sister, Miranda, get ready to add to the weaving project at the Canvas' Art for Tots event Saturday, April 2.

Co-sponsored by The Canvas and Gold Creek Child Development Center, Art for Tots is a free event oriented toward families with young children, ages 2-6.  Last Saturday was the second Art for Tots event, and featured the theme “art in motion.”  Several different art projects incorporating movement were available for kids and parents, including weaving, creating a miniature version of the Sandy Beach wind chime, and painting with marbles. 

Beginning in June, the Canvas will continue to host Art for Tots on the first Saturday of each month throughout the summer, from 10 a.m. to noon.  Weather permitting, activities will be held outside.
