Annette's Preschool is a  5 STAR program

Petite Artiste

Annette's Preschool recognizes the importance of a well balanced education that incorporates the arts into a day of structured curriculum. Although music, dance, drama, relaxation, and movement are naturally a part of our days here at school we support supplemental classes for those families that feel their child would benefit from an in-depth education in specific arts.

What is The “Petite Artiste” Program?

The Petite Artiste program is a unique extension beyond the daily classroom visual arts curriculum that we offer every child, every day at Annette’s Preschool.  Over the course of 6 weeks, Miss Sherrie will guide children age 3-5 toward “visual literacy” as they both learn and express themselves through artistic mediums.  This enrichment program it is particularly suited for children with a natural interest in art, or for any child that loves to explore paper/textiles, acrylic paint, oil pastels, watercolor or clay.  Linking the past with the present, each Petit Artiste will share thoughts and responses to examples of work from great masters all over the world.  Projects will require consecutive classes to complete.   At the end of the season, all children will be invited to display their work for the public at a Petit Artiste Gallery event!

Why Is Art Important For Young Children?

Art is a way of giving form to our imagination, of defining our surroundings, and of expressing our hopes and aspirations for the future!  As young children today grow into the citizens of tomorrow, expectations for their future success lie in cultivating strong character skills that enhance learning in the real world.  These character skills include self-control, openness, getting along with others and being able to make a plan and persevere.  The artistic process naturally fuels a child’s learning in all areas and engages each child in new ways of thinking about, and solving problems. 

Each session will comprise 12 classes over 6 weeks and there will be a small additional weekly cost.
