When: January 14th, 2011

Where: Simply Jane Art Studio (Minneapolis, MN)
For directions please check out the Event Calendar

Description: Elementary painting activity at the Simply Jane Studio. Kids will have fun and learn to express themselves through the art of painting!

Benefit:Painting with young children allows us to see much more than a simple picture. If we observe with careful eyes and ears, we can gain information about each child.

Painting is a way for children to: convey ideas, express emotion, use their senses, and explore processes and outcomes. Children form many connections and ideas through painting, allowing children to be fully engaged and expressive. Painting also helps children to refine their fine motor skills. They may not know what they are feeling, but if you set them down and give them the task of expressing themselves through paint, they will find a release.
