MJCCA Celebrates Eric Carle (and much more!)

Have you been to High Museum yet to see the Eric Carle exhibit? It is FANTASTIC, and we are so excited that other arts communities around Atlanta are celebrating his works as well!

MJCCA Schedule

The 2016/17 MJCCA schedule is out, and it’s celebrating two of Eric Carle’s books. You don’t need to be a member to enjoy the fun! Go here for your tickets before it’s too late!

From Head to Toe

Cost:               $8 – $14

Details:           In a playful retelling of the classic story, children will help “create” the animals in the book, bring them to life, and mimic their movement. This interactive play moves from “Can you do it?” to “I can do it!” to “We can do it!”

Ideal for children 1-5 years.
