Celebraciones – Culture, Art & Spanish

3-week Session (Nov 30, Dec 7 & 14) – Ages 6-10 years

PETALUMA

As parents, we are always looking for the most enriching programs for our children. What could be better than combining art and learning a second language? There are many benefits to early exposure to a second language, such as increased executive brain functioning, cultural understanding, focus, and empathy. By combining this with creative artistic expression, it gives kids the opportunity to think critically, solve problems, and use their imagination, while also reinforcing Spanish vocabulary and cultural elements.

In our Celebraciones workshop, your child will be immersed in the Spanish language with songs, games, and literature. Then they will create art that not only reinforces what they learned about the Latin American culture, but also provides your family with treasured holiday decorations. They will be having so much fun, they won’t even realize they are learning a new language! MORE INFO >>

The Celebraciones – Culture, Art & Spanish is a collaborative project between Colors of Spanish and The Art Room. We are proud to be able to bring you this special offering!      Enroll Now!

Loma Vista Dual Immersion Academy students displayed their El Dia de Los Muertos artwork at the Petaluma Library recently. Classroom volunteer Guadalupe Tausch worked with another parent volunteer to coordinate the art display where Maestra Grimaldo’s students honored their loved ones who had died by doing a portrait art. Children Remember: A Memory Art Project was part of the festivities of El Dia de Los Muertos in Petaluma for many years, according to Tausch. This year, she encouraged students to create their own artwork and arranged for the masterpieces to be featured in the library for all to appreciate.
