Toddler, Preschool and Kindergarten Art Classes
Creating art helps young children develop imagination, creativity, and self-esteem as well as early math skills, such as, spatial awareness, pattern, and symmetry. At Wildwood Nature School, the focus is on the process of making art — learning about color, line, and shape and experiencing different media — rather than on acheiving a pre-determined “ideal” result.
We offer two classes, each tailored to a particular age group. The classes are drop-off, although parents are welcome to stay if they like.:
Tuesdays 10:00 am – 11:00 am, ages 2-4
Session 1 (October 2 – 30) Art Exploration — Children will explore a variety of media and processes for creating art.
Session 2 (November 6 – December 11, no class Thanksgiving Week) Sticky Fingers — Art created with glue and other adhesives.
