Visual Arts

 

 With the help of an art instructor from ArtSeed, students develop an interest in fine art. Weekly

stimulating art practice can include but is not limited to papier-mâché, painting, molding clay, and much more.  

There is a large focus on working individually while being part of a larger group project.

 

This is a very popular class at SFMA. 

 

 

Yoga

 

Yoga is a health-based system of exercises that explores and integrates the mind, body, and breath. Our exercises are specifically tailored for preschoolers. Children take joy in learning how to breathe smoothly and deeply, concentrate on their mind, as well as develop strength and flexibility, Each week we explore a new yoga concept such as balance, energy, pace/rhythm, and many others in a fun collaborative environment.

 

Dance

 

Modern, classic and ballroom dance classes are an important part of the social development at our school. Mrs. Liliia and Mr. Wesly concentrate on different core movements each week to maintain the excitement and momentum with the children. These are fun and active classes that provide a good balance of physical and rhythmical development.
