Join Young Audiences of Louisiana for “Baby Artsplay! TM,” presented by The Helis Foundation.

This free 6-part workshop series is made possible by The Helis Foundation. The 30-minute workshops provide engaging arts-based activities designed to instruct caregivers on how to use the arts at home to promote early learning. Lessons are conducted by certified Louisiana Wolf Trap Teaching Artists, who have expertly crafted multi-sensory experiences that foster children’s natural curiosity for learning. After each workshop, children and their caregivers can download digital Connection Cards for tips on how workshop activities can be continued at home.
