If we want children to value art, we must give them access to it early on in life. We love teaching arts to children. Our philosophy is quite simple: to engage, inspire and teach arts with age-appropriate techniques and subjects. Our school leadership creates time for staff to work together and share ideas how-to-draw books, colorful illustrations, and art supplies. We have our best tried and true tips, and our teachers still aim to include short bursts of creativity in the school day. Plastic pots make superb water pots and glue containers, and salt dough, which is frequently used in childcare classes, is a great alternative to clay. When learning about cave art, children even use mud, sticks, and leaves to paint with.
