Art Adventures Class (Ages 0-4 yo)
DESCRIPTION: Art Adventures is designed for ages 0-4 year olds (with an accompanying adult), where our little learners will explore a variety of art materials, learn about colors, experience new textures, improve fine motor skills, and enjoy being in a social and creative setting. In each class, your child will learn about an element of art (color, line, shape, texture) and basic art skills through working with watercolor paints, tempera paints, air dry clay, yarn and crafts (pom poms, pipe cleaners, big beads, felt, foam shapes), for example. Story time will also be incorporated, time permitting.
All materials are supplied. Students must come dressed in old clothes or have an art smock / apron.
SAMPLE 4-WK SCHEDULE:
CLASS 1: Explore colors and find objects around the room which match the colors on a chart. Play matching colors game with cards. Mix tempera paint colors in ziplock bags.
