ARTS & CRAFTS

We encourage self-expression through the exploration of various media and tools. We use quality paper and paints because we know children's artwork is precious and needs to be preserved
 
Art Appreciation
The children are introduced to famous artists through stories, art cards and paintings.  They learn to recognize artwork from different cultures, and create their own works of art using a variety of materials and techniques leading to visits to both Getty Museums, the Huntington and other Museums.

 Crafts
Learning to work from left to right, and top to bottom
Practicing using pencil and markers with control
In crafts, cutting two strokes with scissors, cutting and pasting, collage, using play dough and later, clay. 

Woodshop
 The children love woodshop with Mr. Everett the builder.  They are introduced to hammer and nails,
screw and drivers, sanding and more.

Self-expression
This is experienced through the use of a variety of media - play dough and clay, foam finger paint,
bio-colors, and watercolors, markers and pastels and more

Able to follow and open-ended
Able to follow step-by-step procedures when working on an art project as well as daily open-ended art
