Welcome to Little HeARTs Online! We cannot gather in the Emerson ballroom right now, so we are sharing projects for Little HeARTs and their big helpers to do at home Wednesdays in April.

(Ages 2-5)
Wednesdays  |  10am
Cost: Little HeARTs under normal circumstances is free for Emerson Members and $5 for non-members. We are delighted for the opportunity to bring art exploration into your households and support our community during this challenging time. We are also grateful for and donations that would help the Emerson continue doing so.
