Little artists do different activities, such as painting, modelling, drawing and crafts. They learn new skills like mixing colours, stamping, sticking, and cutting. Each project is designed to teach a new skill while having fun. The end result is not as important as the skill they learn in the process. Each finished project regardless of the outcome is a work of art – their work of art!!
