In this series of Seminars, we discuss the power of self-directed play in the life of a child. We will explore the research, evidence and the benefits of different types of play in the life of a child.

Children learn so much more and are much happier when they are allowed to experience art in an open-ended, process oriented way. In this workshop, we discuss why the process is so much more important than the product when it comes to children's art. We see examples of beautiful art made by children through an open-ended process. In this workshop, we will learn how to allow the child full ownership over their art work, allow them their process, and still usually have a beautiful 'fridge worthy' piece of art. Participants will make a variery of paintbrushes and art materials from common items you can find around your home or program, and create their own art. Paint and other materials will be provided.
