Art Classes - Pre-School / Young Child

Creative Art for Young Kids

Creative arts activities are deliberately open-ended, foster divergent thinking, and support the process without particular attention on the product. Creative arts activities actively engage children’s imagination through visual arts: so much more than paint, markers, or crayons. It will engage children across all domains—cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical.
