Young Readers & Art Explorers

This is a story time & art class with a focus relating to the story that was just read, retention and exploring creativity based on events or imagination thru reading. Varied art with mediums of three-dimensional, multi-layered projects that teach the elements of fine art. Children experiment with paint, pencils, crayons, water colors, collage, clay, paper, cardboard, wood, fabric, and other media. Art concepts explored include line variations, parts of the whole, balance, construction, and color mixing. Large group projects, such as making a road map, teach collaboration. Children learn to make personal choices, contribute ideas, and work independently. Projects take 3 weeks to complete may include circus animals, castles, dragons, creature puppets, and rocket ships as topics/themes.
