Creative Minds - Mentes Creativas
Creative Minds is a toddler-adult program enriching children through educational & interactive multilingual (English, Spanish, and some American Sign Language) activities and events. The in-person program introduces participants to movement, art, music, literacy, and free play.
Creative Minds classes are offered Tuesdays from 10 - 11:30 a.m. at the Driskell Park Recreation Center, 3911 Hamilton Street. Please register in advance through RecDesk.
NEW: Mentes Creativas offers the same enriching toddler programming with full Spanish language immersion! The program integrates families from diverse backgrounds and teaches Spanish through music, dance, art, stories, and play. Participants will have the opportunity to gain knowledge about Latin culture by learning its language.
