Apr. 19, 2022 5:30pm to 7:30pm

This California Preschool Instructional Network workshop demonstrates that preschool children grow in their understanding of their world through art. The ability to problem-solve and the ability to represent ideas is done through artistic expression. This workshop will provide participants with strategies on how to introduce creative and open-ended projects for children in their programs utilizing the Visual Art Domain of the California Preschool Learning Foundations and Framework Vol. 2.

Participants will:

  • Become aware that art is more about the process than the product, considering the child’s participation, engagement, and involvement
  • Refer to the basic skills needed to invent and create through visual art
  • Explore how children use their skills to participate, express, invent and create through the arts

Level: Introductory
Audience: Teaching/Administrator/Leadership Staff
Age Range:  Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten
