Nurturing Imagination & Creativity Through the Arts (24)

Course Number
CS03: 03_EN_24
Young children are naturally drawn to be creative, and they eagerly explore new methods through which they can express themselves. The Arts include not only painting and drawing but, also dance, music, theater, visual arts, expression of feelings, and development of curiosity and expression. We will explore The Arts during four interactive sessions in which participants will share their knowledge about the arts and enrich their knowledge through review of resources, sharing with others, and planning activities for the children in their program.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify needs and interests of the children in their classroom or program to plan learning activities in The Arts.
  2. Offer children opportunities to explore dance, music, theater, and visual arts.
  3. Encourage children to express their ideas and feelings through the arts.
  4. Scaffold learning by observing the children’s interactions and offering materials and/or opportunities to extend learning.
