Through the masterpieces of the greatest artists, children will explore new art concepts and art media, while drawing, painting, sponging, cutting and gluing. Each art lesson is carefully designed to develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.

Children are also taught to use, respect, and care for art tools, materials, and each other’s work.

The FUN BUS is a full sized school bus that comes to our child care center, whose seats have all been removed and walls and floor carpeted and padded.

This padded and safe equipment varies week to week depending on our lesson plans and children. At the end of each session we have a “cool down” period, each child receives a stamp or sticker for doing a wonderful job.
