Mozart and Scribble: Free Form Art for Young Children
Bring your little ones to the library to create free form artwork (scribble) as they listen to classical music. This is a program for young children who are under the age of 4 who can grip (fist or pinch) a crayon. There is no proven correlation between the exposure to classical music and the brain development of young children. But we are going to have fun with the “Mozart Effect” theory as we work on fine motor skills and socialization.
