Creativity Unbound: Integrating Art Throughout the Environment


Event Description

Most people who work with young children generally agree that art experiences are a critical component of a quality early childhood program due to their value in facilitating creative, cognitive, and fine motor growth, and that they should be available to children daily. This workshop will develop that idea further, to explore the rich integration of art materials, techniques, and projects throughout the environment and curriculum, and will assist and encourage participants to devise ways to integrate meaningful art experiences in all aspects of their programs. NOTE: This training was previously titled "Art Time is Every Time" for SUTQ approval; the new title is for the Ohio Approved version.
