Description

The National Endowment for the Arts research has shown that children who get early arts enrichment education do profoundly better academically, socially and civically.  Children exposed to arts at a young age have a greater chance of becoming creative and innovative thinkers in later years.  The ArtScape curriculum introduces preschool, kindergarten, and first-grade artists to different media like drawing, painting, and sculpture projects to build skills with exposure to a wide range of techniques, all balanced with imaginative art-making. *This class is a part of our Certificate in Fine Arts Program and will give each student one point towards their CiFA certification. Hybrid option available upon request. Please reach out to Kirsten Sanford, Education Manager for more information kirsten@westwindsorarts.org.

Materials fee of $45 due on the first day of class
