Pre-schoolers from River View Day Nursery in Hertford were delighted to showcase their creativity as they took part in a series of activities to celebrate Children’s Art Week.
From researching famous artists and their iconic styles of work to creating their very own masterpieces, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on North Road were thrilled to immerse themselves in all the occasion had to offer, whilst experimenting with a range of techniques and materials along the way, including making their own chalk paint.
As part of the learning experience, children had the chance to re-create an array of the renowned paintings on a large scale, including “The Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh on tin foil, Kandinsky style circle paintings and a giant Piet Mondrian composition, as well as making Picasso playdough faces and observational paintings of their wildflower garden.
River View Day Nursery Team Leader, Susan Moses explained;
“We have had a fantastic time celebrating Children’s Art Week and we have been so impressed with the creations produced by our talented young artists. These activities are brilliant for helping develop fine motor skills, as well as aiding concentration and self-expression, we hope they also encourage a lasting-love of art amongst the group.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
