The primary goal of these sessions is to motivate the child to appreciate the arts through a wide variety of studio activities (drawing, painting, constructing, printmaking, and mixed media), art appreciation games, and discussions about art. The activities of art making; conceiving an idea, assembling, organizing, and working with the materials, give students a concrete way to apply and share knowledge as they discover more about the world of art.
