Tonight!!! Nurturing Drawing / Illustrating with your 3 - 8 yr old

Join Ms. Lauren and Ms. Chris from The Wonder Room for a Parent/Grandparent Chat about natural and simple ways to nurture drawing with your young children - ages 3 - 8. Children's drawing evolves as they grow, but there are many open-ended ideas that can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages and stages of development. We will share some ideas that you can try in your own homes!

*Registration required, this is a program for parents/grandparents/caregivers, a Zoom link will be emailed before the program.
