Get Your Art On!

It's Open Enrollment at the Classic Play Art Academy

Art doesn’t need to be perfect, nor does it need to conform to a certain standard. That’s the beauty of it. Oftentimes, art is simply a vehicle for exploration and experimentation (ie. “play”ing around). Below are some of my favorite experimental art projects we’ve done here on Classic Play.

Some of these projects challenge your child to think about materials in a new way (cork, paper bag project). Others offer a glimpse into how your child sees the world (self-portrait napkins, give a kid a camera). A few will strengthen your child’s fine motor skills (tee shirt design, painting). Then there are those cleverly embedded with multiple lessons, like planning and science (make your own play mat, pH painting). The rest? Well, they’re just for fun.
