Posted by: Rhonda November 17, 2015

Just because it’s November doesn’t mean an end to the wonderful creative opportunities afforded by nature’s loose parts. Bring them inside!

Transient art, by definition, is non-permanent and allows the children to manipulate, explore, and experiment with patterns and shapes in a completely process-oriented way.

Having a defined space to work within adds just enough subtle structure to provide focus. Having unconventional art materials—such as natural loose parts—compels them to use their imagination to create unique and original masterpieces.
