Los Alamos Arts Council and Fuller Lodge Art center are offering a one-hour finger painting session from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday at Fuller Lodge. Messy play stimulates the senses. Finger painting strengthens hand and finger muscles and contributes to fine motor skill development. Finger painting is a medium of self-expression that is open and free. Ruth Faison Shaw, the “first lady of finger painting” rediscovered the art of finger painting in the 1930s and developed paints and techniques for its use with children. Shaw said, “For finger painting aids the imagination and gives a delight in creating things subconsciously, things that one may not even have seen or dreamed of before.”
This session is designed for families with young children. Every child must have an adult accompanying them.
For children 5 and under.
Our classes can get messy. Don’t wear your best tee shirt if it will make you sad to
get paint on it! We do not allow flip flops or open toed shoes in our classrooms.
We have the supplies and do the clean up so you don’t have to!
