First Steps Pre-school Art Program At WCS

Teachers: Kate Pepper & Tarah Clark

Want to improve your child’s fine motor skills and pencil grip?  Join us and have fun creating art projects based on children’s literature, which is read during class.  Children experiment with different media while improving hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills and sequencing.  Each week a different animal from a classic children’s book will be introduced and discussed at group time.  Students will then work with collage materials and participate in a short drawing session each week.  This class is offered to accommodate half-day students either before or after their regular classroom time.
