Elizabeth Cunningham's Waterside Arts Art Classes & Workshops

These Visual Arts workshops are carefully and imaginatively planned for specific age levels and interests. They take place either at the Waterside Arts Centre in the lovely village of Eden Mills, situated 15 minutes east of Guelph, or they can be arranged to be located in a community centre near you.

Elizabeth Cunningham, M.A. Expressive Arts Therapy, is also a certified Orff Music teacher (York University), a Waldorf School teacher with 22 years' experience (JK-elementary), and, for over 30 years, has taught art programmes to people of all ages in public and private schools and other venues such as Harbourfront, George Brown College, and Hart House, University of Toronto.

Pre-School Programme

A friendly, small group of 2 to 4 year olds, accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Each session includes a musical circle time with songs, instruments, poems, and playful movement, followed by delightful projects introducing a variety of art materials. The morning closes with a song and story imaginatively told and accompanied by lovely puppets and music. This class is a gentle, peaceful introduction to the Arts by a very experienced, artistic Waldorf Kindergarten teacher who is also trained as an Orff music teacher and art therapist.

Currently our pre-school program (Cozy Babes) takes place Thursday mornings, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon at Waterside Arts Studios, finishing Tuesday, February 19, 2013. Our Spring Program (Little Sprouts), from April 18 to June 6, 2013, will take place outdoors in our beautiful garden by the river.
