Loose Parts:
Workshop for the
Kindergarten Classroom

Two sections of The Kindergarten Classroom participate in workshops with our artist-in-residence, Maria Ezcurra. One of the course topics covered during the semester includes the theme of "Aesthetics and the Arts for Young Children". In collaboration with Sheryl Smith-Gilman of McGill's Department of Integrated Studies in Education, A Loose Parts workshop was organized for our pre-service teachers to experience open-ended materials and the provocation of the arts in consideration to children’s learning as a whole. Each group involved themselves in concrete experiences using ‘loose parts”; an interactive and hands-on exploration that occurred naturally, as opposed to adult-directed.
