Hands-On Art & Self-Expression (19 months-3 years)
One of the most intriguing ways that youngsters express themselves is through art. As children draw, paint and make collages, they are learning about the world. Toddlers are not yet consciously aware of color coordination and spatial relationships, but art can give them a sense of these areas in this stage of their development - and this is only the beginning. Art provides another much-needed outlet for budding young minds, and at the same time it teaches important skills as they express themselves through the use of different materials. With all of these benefits, it's easy to see why encouraging toddlers to be artistic is so important: join us in the art room as we use a rainbow of colors, clay, paint, paste and so much more to pique your child's curiosity and creativity in this exciting multimedia program.
