The KINDER ARTIST Program is a 3 hour drop off session dedicated to those children in their last year of kinder (ages 4-5 years). The class is kept small in size and lead by a qualified teacher. The focus of each session is to nurture an understanding for the creative process whilst learning the art of socialising and mindfullness.
Each week, our sessions will begin with an hour of story book art where we share a story or picture, discuss it and create art in response to it. We will break for a 15-20 minute fruit snack (parents to supply). Sensory & creative art play will follow for an hour, and our session ends with a 15-20 minute mindfullness activity.
During our art session we will learn about colour mixing, shape and pattern creating, sculpting and construction, as well as extending our fine motor skills with threading and crafting activies. Drawing skills and colouring techniques will be enhanced while concentration and creative problem solving skills extended. Artists will also learn to discuss their artworks with each other as they work through mini art projects.
Sensory art involve activities that activates our senses, like exploring water beads and the concept of transfering, or making potions using citrus and herbs, or creating a painting to the sound of music. Our creative play is gently guided by our teachers and may include using props created from out art session or singing and dancing may be incorporated. Connections will be made to our story.
Mindfullness is about being present and in the moment. It is about connecting with our emotions, thoughts and feelings.
Each session is carefully planned by highly qualified teacher's so be assured the skills being taught will also encourage school readiness.
At the end of the term, each KINDER ARTIST will bring home their special Art folio that houses all their artworks!
Classes can be joined at any time during the term, however this is not a casual attendance art session due to the relationship and trust building process.
