These fun, free classes combine literacy, art, science, and social emotional learning. As a Rhode Island nonprofit, we encourage families to register for classes they can commit to attending, as we want to provide each student who wants to participate with the opportunity to do so. There will be prizes based on attendance. Registrations are limited to only 15 students per class, so register today.

Art in The Park

Our Art in the Park program blends social emotional learning (SEL), art, literacy, and environmental education to foster mindfulness, creativity, and a love of literacy in elementary school children while cultivating an open mindset. We will start each workshop with our mindful moments, followed by reading a book and an art activity. Walk-ins are welcome if space is available. Please arrive at least half an hour prior to the beginning of class to ensure classes can start on time. Each student will get a Creativity Kit including a book, blanket, and art supplies that they can take home with them after the workshop.

K – 5th grade

Reading Adventures

In this seven-week adventure, we will read and write stories, work together to perform plays using puppets we’ll make ourselves, do arts and crafts, write kindness cards, and have a read-a-thon where students can earn books to donate to pediatric cancer patients at Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

Each Reading Adventure session meets once per week for seven weeks. Please be sure to select a day and session that your student will be able to consistently attend each week throughout the session.
