Some very creative fun today at Playgroup in East Auckland today using our collection of Loose Parts to explore transient art.

Transient art is non-permanent, constantly evolving and process orientated creativity in action. When children work on transient art projects they manipulate, explore and experiment.
Loose parts are the key ingredient to making transient art, presented in visually appealing and inviting ways. The use of small parts invites opportunity for sorting, pattern making, exploring shapes, discovering textures and learning about symmetry.

A great mixture of individual creations and also collaborate works today. It was interesting that none of the children's conversations were about "what" they were making, but more about the objects they were using, how they felt in their hands, and how they were using them together. Really focussed on the process!
