New Limited Time Preschool Class
Monet to Mozart Preschooler Imaginative class Thursdays, April 1-April 22
Expose your preschooler to a different type of art class where there is no right or wrong way to explore and create. This class does not have step-by-step instructions or sample art for children to follow instead it focuses on the experience and exploration of techniques, tools and materials. Preschoolers will use their imagination to create their own masterpiece. This philosophy is inspired by Reggio Emilia who emphasizes that each child has their own individual way and we are not all the same. Research shows that children who learn with the Reggio Emilia approach are better able to solve problems, engage in their own environments, express themselves, feel confident to be themselves and enjoy learning. Each week will feature a famous artist and composer such as Picasso and Mozart.
Participants should bring an apron or old t-shirt to protect their clothes. One adult must accompany each child.
