As parents, we love programs that allow our children the chance to explore their (potential) passions. But trying to expose them to as many options as possible until they find that perfect fit can be difficult. Unless you can find a class that covers a little bit of everything at once.
If that sounds interesting to you – and you have a preschooler aged 4-6 that has already shown you their love of the arts – you should check out the 5-day Art Immersion program at Arts Umbrella.
This new program is the first multi-disciplinary, half-day art program of its kind in Metro Vancouver. Running from Monday to Friday, from September through to June, little artists will get the chance to experience a little bit of every program that Arts Umbrella offers; including Dress-up Drama, Imagination Through Movement, Creative Dance, Making Music, and Visual Arts.
For maximum flexibility, you can also select half-day Immersion packages that allow you to choose the days, times, and sessions that best suit your schedule.
Arts Umbrella understands that creativity, when introduced at a young age, helps kids develop self-expression, self-confidence, problem-solving skills, socialization, teamwork, and discipline. That thinking was the driving force behind the development of the program. And recently they invited a group of Vancouver Moms – and their little ones – to experience the programming first hand with an Art Immersion morning.
Judging by the smiles on everyone faces, it was a big hit.

I am hoping this Visual Arts session from @artsumbrella will inspire B to pick up his crayons more often – hello quiet coloring time! Breccan was a bit grumpy this morning, and the teachers really helped make him feel comfortable #ArtStartsHere
