Stick figures are to be treasured. Paint smears to be admired. An ice-sculpture with colored salts to be fun and playful.
The curricula for arts and crafts enables children to learn how to use a variety of mediums (crayons, paint, clay, glue, etc.) for both process-style art (emphasis on free expression with medium/materials) and product-based art (a specific design objective like a coloring book page or a tree-house).
Art Explorers Gallery
Each month children explore new art forms and mediums to learn how to express emotions, ideas, and their cultural traditions. Throughout the month, both the medium (materials used) and the art form (style of art) are practiced. We are sure to include equal opportunities for process-style and product-based art!
