Open Ended Art

Most days we strengthen our fine motor skills and spark intrinsic motivation with open-ended art. Open ended means there are no instructions or expectations, the creator is free to sort, design, build, smash, blend, and reconstruct. In community spaces this also includes negotiating and portioning with those working next to you. Fine motor development is a great primer for later reading skills, working in community with others is an essential life skill, intrinsic motivation supports confidence, and using your own set of guidelines to make something affirms ability. 
The kids made amazing objects and were so proud of themselves
