On Saturday, January 21, 2023 we hosted an art workshop for Schoolhouse educators. Educators were involved in exploring and discussing sketching, water colour paints, and clay, and how these materials can be introduced, supported and extended on in the child care environment!
Understanding how art is a process vs. making an end product was also part of our discussion. And reflecting on how art can support development, social connections, and one's emotions.
The morning had started with a Finnish pancake and bacon breakfast to encourage connection amongst participants and discussion along side a slide show of photos and reflective questions.
Thank you to all who participated! Including art in our programs is a valued part of our time with children!
