Messy Bees

Art Classes for Toddler and Preschool Children

Meet Cooper (pictured) – one of our little Messy Bees.  Cooper just loves to get his little hands into paint, clay, glitter and glue.  But his Mummy doesn’t like having all that mess happening at home!  Does this sound like you and your child?  If yes, then Messy Bees might be just the thing to keep your Little Bee inspired and busy throughout the week, AND keep your house CLEAN!

Art classes for toddlers and preschoolers help to develop fine motor control, hand – eye coordination, as well as the ability to think creatively and express yourself.

Our Artistic Bee Keepers will lovingly guide your Little Bee through a range of art mediums each week and will inspire them to think creatively about colours, lines, shapes and forms.

Enrolling in Messy Bees for the term gives you UNLIMITED classes – you can attend as many times per week as you’d like to for one fee.
