Visual art activities

Children tend to express themselves through a variety of media and activities. Through visual art, each child symbolically represents aspects of his or her world. Centre staff avoids presenting models for children's art and encourages children to interpret and express their creative ideas.

The centre staff encourages children to explore colour, line, texture and form using a variety of materials including fabric, clay and paper. Children engage in activities such as:

  • Constructing;
  • Collage-making;
  • Cutting;
  • Drawing;
  • Pasting;
  • Painting; and
  • Tearing.
