Intimate & Interactive

Designed to expand a child’s social, creative and cognitive abilities, Cayton Classes provide critical developmental skills through immersive play experiences. These tools are particularly critical following more than a year of restricted in-person socializing and learning.

 

Taught by experienced teaching artists and child development specialist, classes are intimate and interactive. Participants are encouraged to play in the museum before and after classes.

Art Crawl

Art Crawl is an introduction to the sensory art experience. The Cayton Art Studio is transformed into a big blank canvas for babies and toddlers to express their inner artist. Babies and toddlers strip-down to their diapers and crawl around in a free exploration of edible (non-toxic) paint, while creating a beautiful mess. And best of all, we do the clean up!

*This class requires parent participation.
