- Draw Me a Song with Hilari Stahler (1pm in Banko Gallery)
More Than Music LLC presents, Draw Me a Song. The mission of More Than Music, LLC is to provide children of all abilities the opportunity to express themselves through the arts! Our Draw Me a Song class is the complete sensory experience for budding artists! Children and their caretakers will be gently encouraged to explore the power of creation in both musical and sensory-art experiences. All materials used will be non-toxic but the class will be geared toward children that are no longer mouthing most objects, approximately 2 to 6 years old. This class is led by a Board Certified Music Therapist who uses creative experiences to gently encourage the development of social, emotional skills and self-expression.
If you enjoy Draw Me a Song, sign up for Hilari’s multi-week class!
