Art Class

 

Our preschool program includes daily art class!    

Our students are exposed to many forms of art, from  famous works of art, to drawing, painting, sculpture and arts & crafts. Your child gets a solid background in fine arts scaled especially for little hands. Through the use of various mediums — including crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint, paintbrushes, watercolors, glitter, glue sticks, scissors and clay.  They are also exposed to the fundamentals of color and art (such as primary and secondary colors, color wheels, color mixing, color families, line, shape, form, perspective and detail). They even learn about sculptures, 3-dimensional art, beading and jewelry.

We have not forgotten, however, that preschool art is more about the process and less about the product. As they learn the fundamentals and create wonderful works of art, children’s self-esteem is built up by teachers and peers respecting the efforts of every child.

In addition, we document what the children have to say about their creations. This lets them know that what they have to say is valuable while recording their observations about their own work for you to enjoy.  You may be surprised at how many pieces you want to keep.

QUICK TIP: Take pictures of each piece of art.  That way you have a digital record of your child’s progress (and it takes up far less space in your closet).
