What you’ll get from this workshop or training package:

  • Identify the benefits children receive from art (aka "The 8 Kinds of Art Smarts")
  • Distinguish between process and product
  • Know how to iniitiate project-driven and material-driven art
  • Decide what materials make for the ideal art area/center
  • Use four techniques for “after art,” that is, four ways of extending the art beyond the original activity (talk, write, display, file)

For this training package, Toolbox Training highly recommends the book 100 Art Activities for Kids. Click on the book cover for details.
