The child-adult groups of our music clubs offer a chance for children by the ages of 1-5 and adults to experience a joyful moment of music and exercise together! The class withholds singing, nursery rhymes, movement, dancing and listening to music. Our association also offers musical groups for children by the ages of 3-5, where their parents also participate.

Arts club

Arts clubs are directed at every child who is interested in visual arts regardless of their skill-level. At these courses children learn to get familiar with various different techniques of visual arts: drawing (coal, chalk, pencil), painting (ready mixed, aquarelle, mixed technique) designing (clay, junk sculpturing, papier-mâché) and contemporary arts by the use of pictures and stories. The goal of these courses is to develop perception and the sense of form and colour.

Our association has groups in Leppävaara and Kilo.
