The language of art begins with the recognition of lines and shapes. We show preschoolers how these lines and shapes can fit together to create a complete whole. Then we introduce them to the tools to do it for themselves. Much of our Pre-K class centers around teaching our preschoolers to slow down, to focus, and to see perhaps for the first time how the world around them is put together. They learn how they can create recognizable forms from the language of art they are learning. We offer our students praise, support and direction, while we ask for their attention and willingness to perform their personal best. When it all comes together, the rewards are endless.
