Fine Arts for Tots

Voice of the City has a long history teaching the youngest children, ages 6 mos to 5 years. Our programs focus on fostering creativity, in our little ones and their caregivers, giving families the tools to bring the classroom into the home. Raising toddlers is tough—they are new humans every month! VOTC’s artist/teachers nurture caregivers, and help build their confidence and affirm their creative impulses to support the development of children’s and adults’ artistic spirit.
