Exploring art is such an important part childhood (and beyond!) With just a simple set of materials you are giving your child the opportunity to explore
the math of shapes, colour mixing, geometry and more;
storytelling and language development as they draw characters, create a scene and talk about their art;
sensory experiences as they swirl paint, smear glue and tear paper;
science discovery as they explore the properties of glue, paint and card;
and the uplifting, joyful discovery of their own voice and vision, and the confidence to express themselves.
