When our children are making 
art they are having fun and 
learning at the same time. 
The children are consistently 
provided with a changing selection 
and supply of paper, water-based 
paint, markers, crayons, finger 
paints, chalk, and other materials 
for creative expression. The 
children are encouraged to choose 
their own materials as they attempt 
to conceptualize the thoughts and 
ideas that occur to them as they 

attempt to understand their world.
