The workshop will give you and your child time together to explore and experiment with a range of materials including paper and paint and make something to take home.
Studio workshop environments enable children to develop basic skills like cutting, fixing and attaching materials. This helps children to develop the motor skills required for pre-writing. Children’s mathematical development is promoted through counting and measuring. Interacting with exploratory sensory materials like paint and clay promotes children’s communication, imagination, problem-solving and thinking skills.
Aprons will be provided, however please wear clothing that you do not mind getting messy in. Speak to your child’s key person for more information about the session.
