A preschool visual arts program dedicated to engaging and empowering children by helping them to discover the creative process based on four 8-week sessions: Elements of Art, Drawing, Painting and Three Dimensions.

Fundamental elements are introduced and the students apply these elements to their work. A variety of media are used to inspire experimentation. Both traditional and contemporary artists’ work is shown to expose the students to old and new ideas.
