Preschoolers love to create and have fun in the art area. They learn to use their fine motor skills at a very young age. The exploration into art expands the imagination and shapes the artistic side in young learners. We as teachers need to encourage and promote what children are learning --art has an everlasting affect that goes far and beyond the scope and sequence of the imagination.
