A Message from the CKA Visual Arts Committee
Celebrating Young Children’s Creativity
Since 1989, early childhood educators throughout California and beyond have generously shared their students’ art pieces at each of CKA’s annual conferences.
Beginning at San Francisco State University and currently at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara, the art exhibits have been a highlight at both venues.
The motivation and purpose for each student’s art differs from piece to piece. It maybe art for the joy of doing, art related to a study or theme, or art to explore the possibilities of different materials.
Whatever the motivation and purpose, young children possess an innate love to create.
Doing art individually, as well as in a group, allows young learners to freely express their unique talents. When children are given freedom to explore a variety of art media, they can experience positive feelings about themselves and their work.
In addition, children can develop manual dexterity and eye hand coordination as they integrate cognitive knowledge and physical growth.
All of us are looking forward to seeing you and your students’ art at the upcoming 34th Annual Young Children’s Art Exhibit!
