Art is a way of expressing the creativity that every child is born with. Art can be a journey in discovering new processes and skills. Art can be an outlet to pursue fresh ideas, or reference old ones.
Art is incorporated into your child's day at Le Chaperon Rouge in many ways. Art is present every day, at least once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Some art projects are used to teach concepts that coincide with teaching goals, as well as to improve fine motor skills such as holding a marker or cutting. Some are open-ended, with various resources available for children to explore. Some are based on Le Chaperon Rouge's “Artist of the Month” curriculum, teaching children about different artist's famous works and how to use that artist's style to create his/her own rendition. The classrooms are well stocked with an art center filled with bins of crayons, colored pencils, markers, glue, scissors, craft materials such as old magazines, wallpaper scraps, bobble eyes, foam letters, multi colored construction paper, writing paper, and so much more. There is also an easel that is age appropriate in each classroom.
