CREATIVE TOOLS AND CONSULTING SERVICES
Early Years Art provides creative tools and consulting services for those seeking to add more artistic knowledge and skills to teacher toolboxes and programs. We have developed quality art curriculum and executed numerous workshops and presentations for teachers, parents, and caregivers. In order to gain and apply knowledge in a variety of settings, workshops are rooted in the power of play, exploration, storytelling, problem-solving, and creative thinking.
One art workshop participant claimed, “Many teachers commented how they were not only grateful for the chance to reflect and be creative, but also how they applied their new knowledge in art to their respective classes.”
