ARTifact Corte MaderaMarin Mommies presents a sponsored shout-out from ARTifact in Corte Madera.

ARTifact, a local leading children’s art school, has expanded to a new location in downtown Corte Madera, at 121 Corte Madera Avenue. The children’s art school has been operating in San Francisco for over seven years, serving thousands of students and families from around the Bay Area. “Many families live north of the city, so it was a natural decision to open the second location in the heart of Marin County” says Lauren Sharp, the founder.

The Corte Madera location will offer the same art enrichment programs that ARTifact has become known for: weekly Art Exploration programs for kids Pre-K/Preschool (2.5–6 years old) and After-School programs for K–12 (6–12 years old). The team of teachers also plans to host Summer Camps later in the year.

November 7, 2016

MV Code Club

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored shout-out from MV Code Club, who offer five reasons why kids should learn to code.

  1. There are now more computing devices than people
    By learning to code, they will be able to master technology, instead of being controlled by it.
  2. Coding teaches problem solving
    Programmers use several logical techniques to solve problems. These techniques are universal and don’t change, even though technology that we use changes all the time.
