Art encourages children to express how they feel, think and view the world. Art lets children use their creativity to plan and construct ideas and bring them to life. Art develops their creative thinking, serves as an emotional release, builds confidence, provides decision making opportunities, and is a lot of fun!
Music, Creative Movement and Dancing are another way how children can express themselves, refine motor skills and spacial awareness, and let off some steam in the process!
Throughout the year, we provide special Experiences, for example visits from petting zoos, reptile shows, the Raptor Center, and even SpiderMan!

Philosophy: Through this year long course of exploring art concepts with the preschool classrooms, our number one goal is to spark the lifelong appreciation and exploration of art through self-expression. This course is not about the final product that we create, but the process we use to get there. Art encourages children to express how they feel, think and view the world. Art allows the child to use their creativity to plan and construct ideas and bring them to life. Through art, children develop creative thinking, it serves as an emotional release, builds confidence, provides decision making opportunities and generates joy.
Process: In this course we will be exploring an artist over the course of 2 to 4 weeks. Throughout the sessions we will introduce a little about the artist's life and artistic style. We will be exploring a different aspect of that artist's career every week. We will be studying artist icons as well as a few emerging contemporary newcomers currently taking the art world by storm. Our goal is not to make “perfect” recreations of famous paintings, but to celebrate the process it takes to get there.
In Spring, Summer and Fall, we try to have lots of Experiences! In 2021, we had visits from a Petting Zoo, the Raptor Center, SpiderMan, and a Reptile Show! 2022 will be equally fun!
