In this class, children will be exposed to various art mediums and tools, both traditional and unconventional. Benefits include:
-exploration such as building a capacity for exploration
– supporting social and emotional capacities
-strengthening cognitive skills as they discover what happens when we make this mark or dip our toe in that color
