The Averitt Center for the Arts in downtown Statesboro introduced “Little Artists” a new program for pre-school aged children during the 2021-22 school year and will continue it for the 2022-23 school year.

In the “Little Artists” program, children discover the world around them through playing, singing, exploring, and creating. Held in the Averitt Center’s Main Building at 33 East Main Street, this fun-filled program will encourage a child’s natural sense of wonder and curiosity while promoting self-expression and social development.

The curriculum centers around learning through play, creating using the arts, helping to develop social skills and sharpening the important foundational abilities needed for school readiness. 

The “Little Artists” program follows the Bulloch County Schools’ calendar but is open to children in the surrounding counties of Screven, Jenkins, Emanuel, Candler, Evans, Bryan and Effingham.

Beginning on August 1, the program will be Mondays-Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is for potty-trained children in the 3-5 year old age range. Tuition is $250 per month ($225 for members). The program will be under the instruction of Michelle Nesmith.
