Italian Art and Culture

2-3 Hour Experience at Your Home

This experience, designed for children ages 5-7, will teach children about Italian art and culture, the artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, and his painting of the Mona Lisa. They'll also learn a few Italian words and watch a short, educational video about Italy.

With the help of an Italy mini book, kids will explore some of the main characteristics of this diverse and beautiful country. With a few more Italian vocabulary words under their belts including the worlds for colors, children will begin an art project and continue to learn about the life and works of Leonardo da Vinci. They'll create their own Mona Lisa figures, interpretations, and future masterpieces. Molto bene!

What Parents Are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
