PRE-K’S PROCESS ART
Process art is the art where the emphasis is on the ‘process and act of ‘ making art over the product produced. There are no specified outcomes, no step-by-step directions, and no sample for children to follow. Process art allows children a wide range of materials to use and create their own cares and whims with just a little structure. It is totally art THEY CREATE!
