The Kindergarten Art Program provides children with opportunities to explore materials, basic art concepts and their unique perceptions. We discover color, shape, form, line, pattern, rhythm and symmetry through a variety of experiences. For example, music and creative movement can help to internalize and deepen one's understanding of a sunflower, animal or weather condition etc. Materials include paints, oil and chalk pastels, clay, scissors, papers, pastes and objects from nature. Large and small motor skills, eye hand coordination and powers of observation are addressed through all lessons. Projects often involve collaboration and reflect the seasons, encouraging curiosity in the natural world. The hope is that our young artists will relax and have fun while practicing skills, absorbing knowledge and gaining confidence in a safe creative space.
