The right art program for preschoolers is one that considers a child’s readiness. Preschoolers pick up skill in a variety of activities at an incredibly fast rate but the skills that are developed vary greatly from child to child. One child may acquire auditory skills faster than another while another’s fine motor skills may be developed earlier. It stands to reason that every activity has their own criteria for readiness.

Preschoolers who are largely making circles will enjoy exploring finger painting activities or using building blocks but are not ready for a more formal art-making experience. The Marvegos Fine Art School has an art class for preschoolers and children who are younger than seven that allows children who can draw something and use scissors to have a successful art-making experience.

Learning to love art-making and the creative process is the goal. I believe this little Marvegos student has mastered the loving part.
