NEW FALL 2 ART CURRICULUM: Each semester, we take a playful dive into the Elements of Art with our little artists, which are, form, shape, line, color, value, texture, space, value, and perspective. We breakdown these basic art & math skills into toddler friendly projects. FOR FALL 2, WE EXPLORE…space through a variety of stamp and printmaking!
Shown work of known and not-so-known artists and their work
Smock (NOTE: We use acrylic paint because it’s resilient bright colors, ease of mixing colors, and it’s a fine art medium. ACRYLIC PAINT DOES NOT COME OUT OF CLOTHES Please bring your little artist in clothing that you won’t mind getting permanently dirty.)
Each session will have a new creative open-ended art problem to solve, medium to explore, technique to try and artist to study
1 HOUR of Open Play, before or after class on your class day at Little Bear Play Cafe
Mini art exhibition to showcase your little artist’s work at the end of the Fall Session
Exciting right?! We can hardly wait to begin! We're at Little Bear Play Cafe so we can have a chance to meet and get to know all of our Forest Hills families while supporting neighborhood small-owned businesses. :)
