First steps in art: Workshop for children 4-6 years

First steps in art: Workshop for children 4-6 years

Structured like the education and plastic technique courses in art schools, this workshop was designed and adapted especially for children between 4 and 6 years old, preschoolers.

Each workshop will be another visual experience, a new encounter with a material or an artistic technique that in kindergarten or in school they do not have the time or opportunity to experience, learning with the reader how to improvise, how to be spontaneous and how to they use their imagination, expressing themselves in an artistic way as personal as possible.
