Valley Pre-School embodies the beauty of what it is to be a child: discovery, self-expression, creativity and developing care for themselves, their friends and their community. There is something extraordinary about seeing the world through the eyes of a child. Pair that with a sense of accomplishment, a love for creativity and glowing pride within themselves and you have the Valley Pre-School art show with creations by youth in the four-year-old program.
On April 27, Valley Pre-School held its annual art show where student artwork and projects were on display for family and friends. The school was transformed from everyday classrooms into an art museum, complete with themed rooms and dedicated exhibits. The kids in the fours class were so incredibly proud and excited to escort their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. throughout the “art museum” and show off all their hard work throughout the year.
What made this art show so special was the intentionality behind each project. The kids were not just coloring and painting, they were studying various art forms and techniques such as water color, sculpture, photography and ceramics. Through their artwork, the 4- and 5-year-old students even demonstrated an understanding of complex ideas like symmetry and synesthesia. When the art show ended, each child choose a flower from a bouquet to take home as a reminder of this exciting day and of just how special they all are.
