Pre-kindergarten is rewarding and a joy to teach. Students are naturally curious about the world around them which I love! Students are eager to explore, investigate, and discover what they can do with art mediums and found materials. Teaching preschoolers the elements of art allows them to explore creativity while strengthening fine motor skills and hand-eye development.
