Children who participate in the morning and/or afternoon Preschool Programs receive three twenty-minute large group music lessons each week. Children are encouraged to recognize sound, pitch and rhythm within various music selections and their environment. Music lessons are provided in a nurturing environment and encompass various genres, cultures, and instruments. Children are provided opportunities to perform, use creative movement, play instruments and sing. During the school year the children perform in music programs held at a different location outside of Arthouse Preschool.

Children who participate in the morning and/or afternoon Preschool Programs are provided the opportunity to work with a certified art instructor.   During art lessons, children are guided and encouraged to experience art creation and explore their creative ideas. The art classes range from 45-60 min and are held in a small group setting in the art studio. When possible the art lessons and/or collaborative art projects are planned in conjunction with the preschool academic curriculum. Early childhood academic goals are also addressed within each art lesson. The artwork of the children is represented in art shows held at Arthouse Preschool and within the Dane County Area.

Arthouse Preschool reflects an arts-based approach to education. The art program is lead by a certified PK-12 art teacher. Each classroom incorporates art, music, and Spanish to nurture and strengthen all areas of your child’s development. Small group and large group instruction is also used to make sure each child is ready for his or her kindergarten experience. Arthouse Preschool also provides a developmentally appropriate program for children in a safe and creative atmosphere through child/teacher initiated activities. The teachers offer hands-on opportunities for discovery, exploration, and experimentation through play and structured activities.​
