El Taller is an open space for children to explore, create, play with language, sounds, and colors-and above all, express themselves!
Led by experienced teachers throughout the school year, El Taller, the Latin American Workshop™, teaches Spanish of the Americas™ for children through sound and repetition in a fun and creative way that includes music, theater, art, crafts, and daily life. The program enhances conversational ability and a sense of how the language works and sounds.
In each class, children explore themes that are important to daily life such as greetings, parts of the body, types of food, colors, the house, the restaurant, the train, i.e. life in the city. By exploring our homes, neighborhoods and city, the program brings a sense of community and better understanding of the diverse city that we call home. Each theme is accompanied by a song or art project that leads children to a better understanding of the language.
Fusing art, music, and drama, our native Spanish speakers will guide your child in a full cultural immersion that blends our successful Spanish of the Americas™ methodology with dynamic fun! El Taller's expert team of teachers are also professional artists and musicians who fuse El Taller's 30-year-strong language method with unique games and activities that will excite and enrich your child.
This class is taught in a bilingual format and is open to children of all language levels where children help each other to improve Spanish fluency through the arts.
The next session will be held on Saturdays, 12pm-2pm: March 5 to April 16, 2016 (6 sessions for ages 4-7, *no class 3/26). The cost for this 6 week session is $210. Residents of PS 109 Artspace receive a 10% discount.

El Taller has allowed me to actualize my
dream of starting a school for the arts for children. The
children as well as the teachers have all enjoyed many meorable
moments during our art and music classes and it's all thanks
to El Taller and the beautiful space and atmosphere that it
provides. It's a magical place of creativity and hope.

When our daughter needed to learn first year
high school Spanish in order to catch up with her classmates, El
Taller was there for her and allowed her to accellerate her
learning over the course of two summer months. What a wonderful
educational institution for our neighborhood!
