When a child is given the opportunity to freely express themselves in a creative way, it fosters imagination, exploration, problem solving, boosts self-esteem and can give them a way to express their feelings and emotions. They may not yet be able to communicate some things verbally, art gives them an outlet. Spontaneous creative play nourishes our soul no matter what age we are. This is truly a necessary part of our child’s development. This class is a wonderful opportunity for children to celebrate the joy of artful creative play. Parents are welcome to join in the fun! All supplies are included.
The class will run on Wednesdays, 1:00-2:30pm. You can pre-register and pay for each session in advance.
About your instructor – Kim Nicoll
Art has been a cherished part of my life as far back as I can remember. I have enjoyed exploring different mediums such as painting, photography, woodwork and sewing. I am now a mother of a fabulous four-year-old who I have the joy and privilege of spending every day with! I want to offer my son as many opportunities for artistic expressions as possible. Together we have made our own play dough and finger paints and enjoyed endless art and craft projects. I marvel at the choices children make in color, style, and the personal techniques they develop. I love to hear the stories behind their drawings. It offers so much insight into what occupies their minds and what just makes them giggle!
