Art is as much about the process as it is the product — in fact, sometimes it’s all about the process for kids.  Being able to create with different mediums and materials is great way to ehance your child’s appreciation and love of art.

And it’s important that we allow that creation to take place naturally without a lot of directions or restrictions.  Which is why I love to bring art outdoors!
