Workshop Description

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. 

Objective: 

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.
