Ruby_MSSAt Morningside School, we infuse art into each and every day.  We believe that art for young children needs to be about the process, not the product or end result.  This means you won’t often see 16 exact replicas of a craft project on our bulletin boards. We value each child’s unique ideas about their creations, and encourage individuality in every art experience.  Our art gallery in the preschool room features these explorations of media, line, shape, direction, size, texture, color, and value.   In the painting above, Ruby (age 4) uses analogous and complementary colors to give depth and dimension.  When I showed 2 other children the work, they shouted in delight, “Blueberries!”  Now all little miss Ruby needs to do is sign it!
