Designed for children ages 4-5 years

Children will:

· Explore and look in depth at nature

· Develop greater observational skills

· Represent their thinking and ideas in a multitude of media, such as clay, papier-mache, paint and pastels

· Learn new vocabulary, skills and techniques while experimenting with a variety of art materials

· Learn to solve creative problems that may arise while creating extraordinary art

Come and explore the many ways to represent nature through visual arts. Representing young children’s ideas in a multitude of materials fosters and deepens their understanding of the world around them. During this four week program, we will observe the natural environment on our beautiful campus and symbolically represent it in a variety of ways. We will dip our hands in clay, mold papier-mache, mix paint to find undiscovered colors, layer the magic of pastels and much more!
