Art Classes
Little Picasso
Ages: 3yrs+ / 45 min. class / Meets Mon at 1:30pm - 2:15pm / 6-week sessions

In this preschool art program, preschoolers will not only contribute to developing their fine motor skills but also be introduced to a number of important experiences in art-making that will encourage them to artistically and visually express themselves. Each student will immerse themselves in drawing and painting as well as constructing three-dimensional creations. Although they will be strengthening their coordination of small muscle movements through coloring, cutting, and sculpting (along with a little bit of handwriting), they will simply and purely be expressing themselves with line, shape, form, texture, value, and color. Along with the benefits an art class gives any age, the goal of this class and its activities is that through a number of fun art projects, the young artist would gain an appreciation for art and beauty in their life and confidence in their Master Creator’s love for them.
