Hello JCC MetroWest!

jcc logoWeʼre growing! Starting this summer, we are expanding our class locations to include the JCC MetroWest in West Orange. Weʼre thrilled about this partnership that will allow us to bring our early art education classes to a wider audience. Our 7 week classes this summer will be Picasso (age 18 month – 3 year with caregiver) and Chagalls (3 -5 year olds, drop off).

To kick things off, we will be hosting a free open house at the JCC on Wednesday May 6. This will give families a chance to check out the classroom, see our unique station play set up, and meet the staff. Donna Bernstein, owner and creator of The Messy Artist, will be leading the open house and happy to provide information about the program. Please RSVP so we know to expect you!5 and under strip

What can we expect at the open house and Messy Artist classes at the JCC?

The same things we bring to our classes at our regular studios! For the open house, children and parents will experience our program first hand and enjoy creative play time together. Students can explore different activities, including our sensory box full of colorful beans, our messy station featuring our stretchy, sticky and gooey goop, painting with odd objects, and a collage project.the messy artist fine art classes for kids

What should my child wear?

We will provide smocks , but sometimes things can get messy, so it’s best to wear clothes that can get dirty.flower ptg 3 chagalls logo

The Messy Artist is a special place to create art. We offer year-round art classes for children 18 months through adulthood. In addition to art classes from September through June, we offer summer art camp and Drop-In and Play art activities for kids between our regular sessions. Our bright, colorful studio is also the perfect place for a kid’s birthday party! The Messy Artist children’s art center was created and designed by Owner/Director Donna Bernstein, a professional educator and artist. The curriculum is inspired and guided by Donna’s teaching experience and research in child development, as well as her passion for art. At The Messy Artist, art lessons for kids entertain and enrich their brains, bodies, and hearts.
