The Kinder Artists Workshops will engage children in creative habits that instill critical thinking skills, problem solving, and in-depth understanding of new and different artistic media. The Kinder Artist Workshops will help to build a child’s social, physical, emotional, and cognitive development with sensory projects mentored by a certified art educator.
