Open-ended art is about the experience of creating, not the end result. It is a wonderful way to encourage artistic expression in young children. Open-ended art allows them to explore art materials to express their thoughts, observations and feelings through the creative process without being told what to create or what materials to use. Children who self-select and self-direct creative activities learn to solve problems and initiate actions, which are useful traits in adulthood.
Workshop participants will explore open-ended art activities where children are free to follow whatever idea catches their fancy, and create works of art that have meaning to them personally.
