Most toddlers (& children), when given a piece of ordinary soft pottery clay, are instinctively motivated to explore its inviting soft and responsive sensory qualities.  They poke it, squeeze it, hit it, pick it up and pound it down, and so on.  Each time they act on the clay, the clay adjusts and responds.  These changes mean very little to us as adults, but for a toddler these changes in the clay are magical.  The child is naturally fascinated, motivated, and empowered to keep experimenting.

Children that learn to paint are also learning to think with an open mind and look at situations more creatively. They're learning how to express themselves more deeply through their art while putting words together on a different level. Your child will take the lessons learned through their painting and apply these lessons and skills throughout their whole life.  Critical-thinking skills are learned and decisions about what works and what doesn’t work, new concepts are learned and used on their own.  Don't miss this chance to give your child an opportunity to learn and grow through the wonders of painting!
