More than just an art class.

In-Person Group Classes at Greenburgh Parks & Recreation


Young at Art is running in-person group classes through the Greenburgh Parks & Recreation Department. Classes begin the week of November 2, 2020 and run through December 18, 2020. All classes will be held in a spacious, well-ventilated room at Greenburgh Parks & Recreation, 11 Olympic Lane, Ardsley, NY 10502 (where the Greenburgh pool is). Classes are being kept small, so that students can maintain a 6-foot+ distance from each other. Classes are expected to sell out quickly, so register early. Registration must be done through the Greenburgh Parks & Recreation website.

We get messy using paint, paper, glue, and fun collaging materials. We make exciting projects, like animals, puppets, trucks, hanging mobiles, and even toys the children can play with later. We develop fine motor skills and learn about shapes, textures, colors, seasons, and the world around us.
