The Purpose of an Art Center is...
~ to expose children to a variety of mediums in different ways
~ to encourage individual expression and creativity
~ to help with fine motor and visual perception skills
~ to develop a personal sense of accomplishment
Objects to keep on hand for ART:
~ an easel (tabletop or free standing)
~ a drying rack or place to lay papers to dry
~ an art table or place where your child can color or do art at anytime
~ a place to display artwork (refrigerators are great for this. It is best to display artwork at the child's level.)
~ old t-shirts or smocks because Art was made to be messy at times.
materials to use for painting:
cut up sponges, brushes, rollers, golf balls, feathers, cotton swabs,
various types of paper to work with:
newspaper, construction paper, watercolor paper, regular copy paper, card stock,
