Tender Fingers introduces art skills and creative thinking to your little ones. Children are innately creative, expressive, and imaginative. Under the direction of our Public Engagement Coordinators, artists will experiment with many different media including painting, drawing, and sculpting. This program also includes snack time, story time, and fresh air playtime in Galt Gardens. The semester culminates in an art show hosted by the class for family and friends.

In conjunction with SAAG exhibitions, themes of identity, space, perception, and light will be explored throughout the semester.

Tender Fingers is a program designed to introduce basic art skills as well as creative thinking and problem solving to 3 to 5 year-old artists. Working together and individually, we will explore our own creativity using a variety of conventional and non-conventional materials to create sculptures, stories, photos, paintings, drawings, dioramas, toys, instruments and much more. Our morning program will also include a snack and story time as well outdoor playtime in Galt Gardens.

September will be a Colour Party. We will use non-conventional materials to explore colours and shades in both 2D and 3D art. We will also begin to build an understanding of the role that different colours play in art.

October is Shape-tastic, Line-tacular! We will explore how to use shapes and lines in art. From fundamental drawing skills to more surreal creations, we will work to understand the monumental role of the humble line or dot in visual art.

November is dedicated to all things weird. Weird Art will explore non-conventional forms of art. From Polluck-style paint splatters to candy castles, we will begin to explore out-of-the-box creativity.

December will be a Holiday Fest! During this month we will create art inspired by winter holidays and the dark, cold and crisp season itself. This month will culminate in an Art Show that will allow us to show off our semester’s creations to our family and friends and also the broader SAAG community!
