“Our family loves the art classes at the JCC! Our daughter started in the Artistic Babes class and continued with Artistic Tots, because she loved getting messy and playing with all of the different supplies, materials, and colors. We enjoyed bringing home her “artwork” and even framed one of the pieces for her playroom. The teachers are patient, kind, and engaging. I would highly recommend the Artistic Babes/Tots classes!”

Signing Smart (5 months – 2 years)

If you’ve been looking for a window into your infant or toddler’s mind, or for a way to reduce frustration and tantrums, then Signing Smart is your answer! Signing Smart children can begin communicating with signs as early as 5 months of age, tend to learn spoken words easier than non-signers, and show cognitive and linguistic advancements at age 4. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun!

Signing Smart play classes are for children aged 5 months to 2 years, and are filled with songs and activities to engage parents, caretakers and children, as well as loads of developmental information to help you understand how your child learns and acquires language at every age. We learn over 150 ASL signs over the 10 week class session!

DATES & TIMES:
10-week session
Tuesdays, September 15 – November 17
10:00 – 10:45 am

LOCATION:
JCC Denver. Weather permitting, the class will be held outside to allow for social distancing; when the weather is less cooperative, we will hold class in the JCC board room, which is large enough for social distancing.

“The toddler art class was a wonderful experience for my family! My 2 year old loved trying out the wide range or materials and ideas that we would never have been able to replicate at home. Plus she could make a mess and I didn’t have to clean up! Even my 4 year old who normally has little interest in anything artistic was able to discover projects that sparked his creativity. We can’t wait to return!”
