Interested in something fun, creative, and engaging for your young children? MAP Family Learning Center has put together a fun class for parents who want to really engage their kids, ages 3-5, in playful art, while building many important skills. Led by Georgenia Toussaint, who we have witnessed do magic with kids in this age group, each class has a distinct topic for kids (and their parents) to explore and learn.

About Art, Learn, & Play
The Art, Learn, & Play art program is for children ranging from ages 3-5yrs old. This is a great art program to encourage children to explore art through play doing hands-on activities. Parent/s and their child will participate in these creative learning scheduled classes, supporting their child’s creative interest and use of materials and art supplies during class every Saturday morning from 9:30. a.m.
About the Instructor
Hello, my name is Georgenia Toussaint, I am the facilitator and instructor for the Art, Learn, & Play program for the summer. My objective for this art program is to support children and families within the local community. I curated these fun engaging, hands-on art classes for parent/guardian/s and their children, to discover art through play. As a preschool teacher I find children learn by their curiosity, helping children build their growth development skills. I am currently an undergrad at Lesley University majoring in Education and Art therapy. I have many years of experience both as a professional artist, arts administrator, and educator.
