On Monday afternoons preschool-aged boys and girls meet on the Oak Tree Campus with Mariana Worden, a teaching artist who encourages young children to be creative and have fun. Children learn about shapes and color as they experiment with a variety of media, make new friends, and let their imaginations soar.


I really enjoy teaching kids! They’re full of creative ideas and come with their own stories. They’re extremely creative. Young kids make the projects their own, with no limits to their expression.”
