  4. Centre for Arts and Artists Kinder Clay

    April 20, 2019, 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM @ Centre for Arts and Artists

    We will be using air-dry clay. You will be taking these home that day. If you have other siblings that would like to participate, be sure to sign them up. Young children, when given a piece of ordinary soft pottery clay, are instinctively motivated to explore its inviting soft and responsive sensory qualities. They poke it, squeeze it, hit it, pick it up and pound it down, and so on. Each time they act on the clay, the clay adjusts and responds. These changes mean very little to us as adults, but for young children these changes in the clay are magical. The child is naturally fascinated, motivated, and empowered to keep experimenting. **There needs to be a parent or guardian to help each child attending. This is a hands-on activity and they will need your help. Thanks for understanding. **
