Tuesdays for Tots
Art adventures abound as toddlers take over Cheekwood every Tuesday morning! Stop by our studio in the Learning Center to craft an original artwork with your tot. Drop-in activities change weekly so that your budding young artist will be introduced to the wide world of art. Tuesdays for Tots is sure to be a memory-making routine for you and your toddler, so make plans to attend a class today!
Don’t forget to bring your imagination and dress for mess!
*NEW* Museum Minute!
