The Preschool Arts Lab is a literacy-based art program where children actively participate in hands-on, open-ended art experiences with emphasis on creative inquiry. Talented and caring instructors will conduct one-hour classes (serving multiple classrooms a day) in visual arts and literacy. Each session begins with a reading of the selected book, followed by ‘open lab’ time: a time for children to actively engage in developmentally appropriate, process-oriented, exploratory, literature-based art activities. These types of activities establish school readiness, improve motor and sensory skills, develop socialization skills, encourage enjoyment of reading and inspire creativity.
