Exploring Line, Shape, Color, and Space

Albert Kogel will provide opportunities for participants to experience and explore working with line, shape, color, and space, which are all key contributors and elements to expression, understanding, and construction of ideas. Additionally, these key elements develop skills and connect to academics. Classroom application with young children will be explored and identified.
