Beat the Winter Blues with Kids Programs

The colder months can be a challenge when it comes to keeping your kids entertained and engaged. Let Southlake Recreation help you out with fun and educational programs! We’ve got arts, crafts, music, and so much more. Here’s what’s coming up in early 2020. Registration is now open, and class sizes are limited, so sign up early to secure your spot!

Young Rembrandts | Ages 5-12
Each week the children will create a new drawing. All lessons are planned and we provide the teacher and all supplies. Using ‘dry media’ we teach children how to create art drawings using step by step guides and encourage creativity. Our drawing classes offer child-friendly and relevant subject matters to specific interest and increase knowledge retention. Through the process of weekly instruction, Young Rembrandts students are exposed to a wide variety of subject matter, artistic concepts, art history, and mastery of their materials.

Session 1: January 7-28
Session 2: February 4-25
Session 3: March 3-31
Session 4: April 7-28
Session 5: May 5-26

MusicMaker: Let the Journey Begin | 18 months – 4 years
Journey into the world of music-making as your child discovers their singing voice while exploring a variety of instruments. Every class is live music-making (no recorded music) incorporating music from a variety of cultures. Children are exposed to a variety of tonalities and meters to assist in developing their musical ear at an early age. Basic music theory concepts are also included in each class laying the foundation for a smooth transition into private voice or instrument lessons.
