ART & CRAFT ROOM
The art& craft room gives expression to your child’s creativity; it also enhances the fine motor skills i.e. eye-hand/finger co-ordination. The child learns to express his feelings through art.
The child gets to use and experiment with a lot of art material for ex:- play dough, moulds, foam stamps, crayons, paints etc. The material required for art activities is child friendly, non toxic and from well-known companies. Each kid has an apron to protect his/her dress from spills.
The concept art & craft wall is the child’s first visual introduction to the different art and craft material and its usage.
Art & craft activities are age appropriate and also keeping in mind the learning objective of each activity for example in a simple activity like crayon colouring, a child learns to hold the crayon properly between thumb and two fingers. He/She also colours within the specified closed space. This helps the child’s eye and finger co-ordination.
The art work done by these budding artists is also displayed on the soft boards in the room. An Easel board in the room will help to perhaps bring out the artist in your child.
Child is also encouraged to free play with material like play dough, clay etc. This is also done under the teacher’s watchful eye.
Teachers also take care to see that:-
- The kids don’t put crayons in their mouth.
- They don’t rub their eyes while playing with play dough, clay.
- The kids are careful while handling even the plastic scissors.
- They don’t splash paint all around.
- They learn to clean up and put the material back.
- They wash up after art & craft activity.
