Term 4 art program for 5-7 year olds with Maxine McClenaghan
When
Thursday 22nd October 2020 3:30pm
Where  Quarry Arts Centre, 21 Selwyn Avenue, Whangarei View Map
Overview
 
In this hands-on 9-week programme the children will explore, play and experiment with different art tools and media in creative ways.  Through art play the children will be given opportunities to use their imaginations, make decisions, take risks, grow confidence and of course have fun. Each session will also have allocated time for self directed art time. This will allow the children the freedom to make independent choices on what materials to use and the outcome of the work. This encourages individual expression and process rather than on the final product.
