Get Ready to Get Messy, and We’ll Clean Up
It’s hard to imagine letting your toddler paint on the floor or encouraging them to play in the mud if you’re the one who has to clean up the mess. At a BADM Family Class, your toddler can grow their curiosity and creative thinking skills through messy art projects, and all the clean-up is on us! March’s Family Class sessions explore the messy side of opposites like wet and dry, hot and cold, and up and down. In all Family Class sessions, toddlers and caregivers enjoy time together, experimenting with new materials and testing out creative ideas.
March Family Class sessions include one class a week for three weeks. For more information, please click here.
Session One: Thursdays March 1, 8, and 15
Session Two: Fridays March 2, 9, and 16

March Drop-In Programs
Creative exploration and STEM-based learning go hand-in-hand everyday at BADM! Our science, technology, engineering, and math programs encourage children to grow their curiosity and try out new ideas. In March, children can experiment with novel tools to create original patterns and large-scale, collaborative designs or can contribute to the construction of a life-sized cardboard universe while exploring low and high-tech tools in the Fab Lab. These programs, in addition to the other March offerings, combine innovative learning with creative fun, encourage STEM learning, and teach artistic techniques.

All drop-in programs are included in the price of admission or free for BADM members
