For over a decade, Wee Little Arts has been fostering and nurturing the creative voices of children. Voices that are being silenced in our nation's schools as budgets are slashed and programs cancelled. Our highly acclaimed supplemental program stimulates imagination, encourages self-confidence while having fun, and develops skills that have been proven to benefit future academic performance and personal endeavor.
Melissa Bradshaw, an experienced elementary teacher with a degree in Arts Education, developed Wee Little Arts in response to a need she saw as a teacher for early childhood arts education.
Melissa realized that the students in her elementary school classrooms had been under-served in the development of fine motor skills, critical thinking skills and creativity that early art education encourages.
Wee Little Arts is a process-oriented approach to preschool arts education that has been overwhelmingly successful in engaging and empowering children by helping them discover the creative process. Wee Little Arts is a method of releasing the natural creativity of young children through the use of mixed-media, drawing, painting and three dimensions.
