ARt for Toddlers
Art for Toddlers is a fine art class designed to introduce young children to shapes, colors and famous art! The hand-over-hand technique will help children and their adults explore new sensory materials, art concepts such as color mixing, and fine motor conditioning with drawing, gluing, and cutting activities. It's never too early to introduce children to master artists, therefore, classes will allow children to see and recognize pictures of artwork from the greats!
"Cool cool blue, warm warm red, cool cool purple, warm warm orange." Art for toddlers projects are rhythmic and full of art vocabulary. Classes offer the opportunity for toddlers to dedicate 20 - 30 minutes to art making. Class topics are broken up into sections with cutting then pasting, mixing then painting, etc. reinforcing the "first, then" concept and inspiring self-regulation. Wiggling is expected. Tears, hugs and curious movement around the classroom is a welcome part of the learning process. Toddlers will work with their grown ups to create one-of-a- kind artwork documenting their growth and individuality.
This is a wonderful way to prepare children for preschool and J.F. Mazur Studio Parent & Me classes.
