(January 26-March 2) BABY BUILDERS
Any parent familiar with Bob the Builder might be particularly interested in a workshop at the Arlington Arts Center](http://www.arlingtonartscenter.org/) beginning tomorrow afternoon at 4:30. Spectacular Structures: Intro to sculpture and architecture is a six week course suitable for budding builders between the ages of five and seven. The class uses clay, wood and metal appealing to young architects and artists. Taking a cue from Michelangelo, the class will be taught in Italian, as well as English.
The arts center offers other classes which start soon, including If I Were a Caveman:
Exploring media then and now, a drawing and painting class for pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten-age students.
