Mummy & Me Art Class (2yr to 4 yr) – Thursdays 3pm to 3.45 pm
This class is all about focusing on the sensory process and not just about artwork. We have developed plenty of age appropriate activities such as finger painting, clay manipulation, water, ice and sand exploration. We use sensory play activities for example: playing in a box filled with colored rice or shredded paper. We also involve edible art (noodles/ pasta play, fruit pop painting etc) we use methods to manipulate salt and flour clay, texture collages and more. The classes are themed and include exciting variety of sensory experiences. Through this class your children will enhance fine motor skills, they will develop social and cognitive skills, learning to express their curiosity and of course, the most important thing is that they will have lots of fun! During the second part of the term we incorporate more varied materials into our curriculum accompanied by our qualified teacher, implementing focused projects, including group art projects developing communication and social skills. We will explore lines, colors, textures, shapes and patterns through creating masterpieces with a wide variety of techniques and materials. In each class, children explore themes such as colors, shapes, nature, seasons and animals etc. Our young artists are exposed to unique and fun art mediums such as foam and finger paints, watercolors, clay, recycled materials and more. Each week we are creating one craft or collage project and one painting or drawing project. We also often work with clay and sculpture making.
