Communicating Through Art

Workshop Description and Details


Whether we are focusing on a science project, a collective community project, or simply through play, art plays an integral role. We will share how to use art organically through a program and how to embed it in the curriculum. We will offer materials to consider using, to open dialogue with children and suggest the possibilities available for considering art as a tool for communicating with children. 


Participants will learn how to set up an inviting and provoking environment. Also how to incorporate natural, inexpensive and readily available materials to inspire beautiful art processes. In this workshop, educators will come to understand the value of using the arts as a means for children to express themselves. 


This workshop is geared toward supporting educators who work with children who are aged 2.5-6.

BONUS: If you can not attend live this session will be recorded and made available for up to 30 days after the live session date!

Note: If you register for this workshop please keep an eye out for the workshop link. It will be sent in an email.
