Join in for an hour of fun where you will sing, dance, play and have fun with other families. Musikgarten program is a leader in early child music education. Through music, children take an inner experience and move it into a shared creative experience. Group music-making releases energy which can be channeled in creative, productive directions. Then, listen to Cincinnati's largest Suzuki Strings program kids, and then try a string instrument yourself too - aka. get in on the action with the instrument petting zoo! Suzuki violin program at Wyoming Fine Arts Center is a collaborative program between CCM Prep and Wyoming Fine Arts Center, and presents the largest and oldest Suzuki program in Cincinnati. What is Suzuki? For more information: and about the Suzuki program at WFAC/CCM Prep:

12 pm - 1 pm Art Studio Open House (Art Studio)

Come and make some fun art (kids w/parents)! Creating and making are two of the most basic impulses young child possesses.  We believe that encouraging the creative process helps promote a lifetime habit of exploration, personal expression, self awareness, confidence and problem solving skills. Projects will range from guided to free imaginative creations.
