Art Center

Our classroom provides a variety of media for children to explore in the art center. True "art" is spontaneous, creative, and fun. The focus is on the process of creating something new and enjoyable rather than on the finished product. Children often create things for use in other centers or to give to others.

When we play in the art center, we are learning:

creativity
sharing
planning and evaluating
cutting and pasting
problem solving
critical thinking
copying
fine motor skill
representational skills
visual discrimination
