Kids to get messy in park district program

Register now for Messy Mondays; four-week art session begins January 9

Time to get messy with art materials! Messy Mondays at the Bensenville Park District allows children ages 3-5 and their parents to experiment with a variety of art materials, including finger paints, stamps, modeling clay, scissors, glue and more.

According to Eileen Kubica, early childhood teacher, the goal of the class is to have fun by incorporating creative ways of thinking.

“Messy Mondays allows children to develop their fine motor skills while using a variety of tools,” Kubica says. “Your child will have an opportunity to create their very own masterpiece each class using different artistic mediums.”

Four four-week sessions are offered in winter-spring 2023, beginning Monday, January 9. Other sessions begin February 13, March 20 and April 24.

The fee is $45 for residents and $60 for non-residents, which covers the cost of materials and instruction. Register at the Deer Grove Leisure Center, 1000 W. Wood Street, at least one week prior to the start of each session.
