Process Art

What is process art?

  • Emphasis is placed on the process of creating art instead of the final product.

  • Child-led instead of teacher directed. The children decide what materials to use and how to use them.

  • Every child’s art will be unique and original. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do art.

Why is process art a part of our curriculum?

  • Process art provides the opportunity for children to express themselves freely while discovering their own unique aesthetic preferences.

  • Children exercise creativity, flexibility, planning and problem-solving skills as they experiment with different ways to use a wide range of materials, tools, and techniques.

  • Children develop fine motor skills like painting, cutting, drawing, and gluing.

  • Children practice verbal expression and language in describing their work.

  • Process art encourages resiliency and problem solving as children experiment and learn from the results.

Examples of process art in our classrooms:

  • Children experimented with mixing liquid water colors together and named the colors they created.

  • Children collected natural objects outside and used them as paintbrushes and stamps.

  • Children investigated how to create their own paints from pressed berries and ground up rocks.
