Artovert: Where It's Cool to be Quiet

Is your child an introvert: overwhelmed by large groups, distracted by sensory overload, or simply prefers to learn and play independently or in small groups? 

 

Artovert classes have a minimum of one student and a maximum of four for children ages four and up. Jennie's goals are to foster creativity, nurture individuality, and encourage discovery by building skills, confidence, and freedom of expression.

 

In a small group setting, Jennie observes children (personality, learning style, strengths, challenges, social/emotional skills), asks how her program can best fit their needs, explores ways to meet those needs, provides support, reflects on the results, and begins again. Jennie enjoys using emergent curriculum, curriculum based on the emerging interests of the children.
