About this Event

Strengthening Your Creative Art Program

Are you trying come to grips with the move towards creative arts and away from traditional crafts? If so, join us for this hands-on, interactive workshop. The session will look at the importance and benefits of a process focused approach to the arts rather than a traditional product-based crafts approach and how this aligns with current thinking and Ontarios Early Learning Frameworks. Educators will have an opportunity to engage in conversations, share personal experiences, and develop an arsenal of practical strategies to draw on to support children to express themselves through the medium of art. Educators will develop a list of engaging creative art experiences to offer children of all ages. The session will also look at practical ways to engage with parents regarding the importance of creative arts experience for young children.
