Creative Arts Philosophy
Regardless of each child’s age the children create, participate with and produce their own art work. The children will do this on an individual level as well in a small or large group setting. Starting off at infancy the children are involved in hand-over-hand art projects that stimulate their senses and encourage new discoveries. Each child has an opportunity to create their own “work of art” by being given materials that they can “discover” with to create their own masterpiece. The children also follow two to three step directions to create some of their artwork. In our Under Graduate and Graduate classrooms the children have art carts and writing centers to encourage the children to use and discover with the materials that they would like, as well as working with other children, socializing and encouraging writing skills and sentence structure.
