Village Arts Is Born
In 1994, Kindermusik of Greenville began as a place where children could learn the way they learn best -- through movement, play and exploration, hand-in-hand with a loving adult to create with them.
Rosalind's long-held dream was to have a place for young children and their families to experience all aspects of creative art and movement and to establish a village where families could connect ... where caregivers and children alike would be noticed, loved, celebrated and encouraged.
Now the dream has become a reality in the form of Village Arts, offering Kindermusik, art exploration, mommy and me yoga -- and who knows what else we'll come up with!
We firmly believe in the power of integrated arts, so every class offers your child the opportunity to create, explore and move. Starting with newborns in Kindermusik Foundations all the way through age 7, there is a place for your child at Village Arts.

Young at Art Teachers
Stacy Stewart is a pianist, violinist, music educator and mom to Ella, age 3. She is delighted to bring her knowledge of music and education to our Village, along with her compassionate, fun and loving personality!
Nicole Kamb became interested in creating and painting at a very early age and received her BA in art education from Lander University.
Nicole is a fine artist with a passion for teaching children. She was inspired to pursue process art with little ones when her daughter came home from an art class, distraught that she could not color in the lines. Nicole is passionate about creating art, and instilling confidence in our young budding artists and is full of wonderful ideas for your child to explore and experience!
