Art Smarts is a workshop for grandparents, parents and teachers who want to encourage creativity and artistic awareness in children. You will learn a vocabulary to teach children about their art, and a way to talk to them about the merits of their art. When they ask, "Is this good?" you will have the words to talk about their strengths and their specific style of creativity. You will also take with you ideas for art projects that you have tried yourself. Most materials will be provided. In addition, you will receive a short materials list at the first class.
