Sparking Curiosity, Igniting Imagination, Creating Joy: the Process of Art With Young Children

An Exploration of Children as Artists

Concord Children’s Center

December 1- 30, 2019

The process of creating art – rather than the final artistic product – and the joy that this process brings to young children is the centerpiece of this exhibit featuring artwork from Concord Children’s Center students who range in age from 12 weeks to 8 years.  Children learn best through play and open-ended activities that give them the chance to explore, ask questions, take risks and make meaning from the world around them.  Process art allows children the opportunity to be themselves, make their own decisions, connect with others and create.  Each of the 16 pieces of art in this exhibit is accompanied by photos of the children creating their piece as well as information about what each project involved, why the educators chose that particular project, and an interesting fact or two about what we can learn from the children’s experience .
