Christmas Wreaths With The Kids

We’re feeling extra festive this week with these cute little holiday wreaths the kids put together just in time for Christmas!

The little ones wanted to do craft at a mums Christmas get together so we made some fun wreaths.
At the Pond wreath, In the Garden wreath and Flower and Creepy Crawlies wreath. Their imagination ran wild with rainbows, snails, ladybugs, and frogs living on their year-round wreath.

Getting Cheerfully Christmas-y In Our Art Classes

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Our little crafters showed off their fine motor skills, making 3 projects in 1 lesson! We completed Santa Claus and his doppelgänger friends, a pine cone mini tree and the reindeer ornaments (triangle and diamond shapes). They ended the class with a little Christmas treat of brownies and a last smile to our classmate friends!

Get Messy With a Splatter Painting

Kids are free to get messy at our painting classes for preschoolers!

Art provides many happy opportunities for a child to actively experiment. Colour splatters, using multiple brushes simultaneously, droppers and more to create new ways to paint. Learning new skills to invent something new will be useful when the child grows up. #kidsactivity #painting #art #paintingclasses #kidsart #children #kidsartclass #skills #creativity #invention #lespetitspainters #easel #experiment #learn #fun #artstudio #splatter

With a bit of inspiration, we give the kids lots of happy opportunities to express their creativity by splashing paint around on a canvas using different implements– a couple of brushes, droppers, and even their hands if they want to use them!

Experimentation encourages not just imagination but also problem-solving abilities, two very important life skills kids will need growing up.

Food Art Fun With Kids

Fantastic food art fun! Here’s a painted doughnut by one of our students from our regular painting sessions in Chatswood and Hunters Hill.

Food painting! Kids love drawing and painting food. Make something ordinary, special. Get your little one to imagine decorating doughnuts, ice cream or their favourite treat. #art #creativekids #food #kids #painting #kidsactivities #paintingclasses #children #doughnuts #drawing #colour #lespetitspainters #lifeimitatesart

Food art is just one way of making art fun for your little ones! You can do the same sort of kids’ activities at home using bread, muffins, ice cream, or their favourite treats.

Experimentation is all part of the learning process.  At Les Petits Painters’ painting class for children, kids have the freedom to express themselves in a nurturing, relaxed environment.

A Flying Puppy (Featured Kids’ Art)

Here’s a painting of a flying puppy!

Flying puppy. Kids love a good story! Drawing a picture with a story becomes even more exciting. It?s a new (non-verbal) language. #kidsart #loveart #expression #lespetitspainters #story #imagination #whimsy #preschool #drawing #art #painting

From one of our student’s artworks at our painting classes for preschoolers.

Kids love art, especially after you’ve fired up their excitement with a good story– inspiring them to get creative and have lots of fun!

Children learn a  new (non-verbal) language, and through fun art, they get to cultivate a healthier imagination, expressing even the most whimsical and absurd.

Isn’t it just adorable?
