Creative Arts Play

What do children learn from creative arts play? 

Children of all ages delight in expressing their ideas through sounds, textures, colors, and shapes. Creativity in children can be developed by engaging them in activities that enable them to share their ideas, thoughts and feelings. 

The creative arts– painting, sculpture and drawing–are a crucial part of childhood. Not only do the arts allow children to express themselves, but creative activity can enhance development of children’s skills in literacy, science, math, social studies, and more.


Kid Friendly Plein Air Painting

The plein air style of painting is an outdoor art that uses your surrounding nature. Using easels, canvas, brushes and paint, your child can capture the magic of Elm Park around them.

Self Portrait Puppets

Children at this age are developing self-image. This activity will promote a positive self-image as children create a puppet that will look like them. They can then use their homemade puppet to play in the puppet theater!
