What We Do
The Art for Little Ones course is an excellent means of introducing children to one another and to art, through a story. Each half term we start a new story based on a fairy tale, myth or legend, which encourages continuity and results in the children having deeper memories of what they’ve learnt.
Once the story has been established, we expand on the story through stretches, song and dance on a week-to-week basis. As the story unfolds we introduce the steps to make characters and props through techniques like puppetry, printmaking and modelling in clay.
The Art for Little Ones course encapsulates the fundamental belief held at Kite Studios, that children enjoy messy play, love to explore new materials and that this helps to develop their core artistic and social skills. Children are taught skills including cutting, threading, constructing with paper, clay modelling, painting, puppetry and printing and – above all else – are given the opportunity to have fun in a social setting, where they are free to express themselves creatively.
