The Value of a Child's Art Process
In a young child’s art process, there are no step-by-step instructions, and no samples to follow. Young children’s art process is unique and original. The art is entirely the child’s own and the experience the child’s choice.
The art process is important for children especially during their early development. Research shows that art activities that are focused on exploration and process develop brain capacity in early childhood. Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and supports the development of cognitive, social-emotional and multisensory skills.
Is your goal to encourage children’s creativity through developmentally appropriate art experiences? Join the class to learn how to support developmentally appropriate art experiences for young children and increase your teaching strategies for leading process-focused art.
