Welcome to Mini Monets – Creative Children’s Art Classes!

Mini Monets is an extracurricular art class for ages 3 and up  that is provided on location among area schools, child care centers, and recreation facilities around the Wilmington, NC area.

When given a chance to create works of art in Mini Monets, children grow in a way that is unlike anything else. There is cognitive growth, improvement in fine motor skills, and enhancements in critical thinking.

As education in schools direct focus towards science, math, and technology, art can aid in the teaching, learning, and understanding new concepts within these classes. Mini Monets is a program that blends the gap between academics and visual learning. Not only does the Mini Monets program teach students about art movements and famous artists, but the curriculum is designed to incorporate the Common Core Standards and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) into the various projects throughout the year.

The Visual Arts continue to be a vital form of communication in a world where gaps of distance and language are continually shrinking. Art is also that chance to escape. Art gives someone the freedom to create their own reality, putting their thoughts, emotions, and feelings into a work of art that is uniquely their own. Mini Monets is also a great program for children with special needs. The curriculum is adaptable for a wide range of students as an alternative way of self expression, creation, and understanding.

New Students can join classes at anytime! To sign up or get more information, contact Jennie Wenk at minimonets@gmail.com or (910) 399 – 1708.

  5. please update me on your programming needs

  6. I am looking for an afterschool program for my 6 year old daughter that PICKS UP or GOES TO Eaton Elementary – sure, stay at home mommies get to take their kids to 30 minute classes downtown, but working mommies get off at 6 pm (if they’re licky) and barely have time to get them in the bath! My daughter is extremely creative and would love an afterschool art program!

  7. I am interested in the fine arts summer camp for my 5 year old son. Please let me know of costs and how I can register. Thanks!

  8. I quite like reading a post that will make people think. Also, thank you for permitting me to comment!

    • I’m glad that you are enjoying my posts. I try to create all my projects so that the children have to look inside themselves to create their work. There is definitely a benefit for step by step projects but free flowing creations are just as, if not more, beneficial to the development of an artist.
