Hatch Art + Playdates (Virtual)

Monday, 9:00 am to 10:00 am $5

Are you interested in child-centered play experiences that are focused on imaginative open-ended art exploration? Join Hatch Art Studio from February 15 – March 29, 2021, for their virtual “Hatch Art + Playdates!”


Hatch Art + Playdates is a series of live and recorded courses that will happen weekly from February 15 – March 29, 2021. The Playdates were developed through Hatch Art Studio’s child-centered, joyful curriculum that is focused on imaginative open-ended art exploration with an emphasis on deepening critical thinking skills and developing creative confidence.

These Playdates are best suited for children ages two to eight years old. Playdates will be hosted in two sessions, one for children ages two to five years old (at 9 a.m.) and one for children ages six through eight years old (at 4 p.m.). Themes will remain consistent across both age groups. A free sample of their lesson “What Could That Be?” is available on their website.
