Title

Art

Description

We believe art is a fundamental and natural part of the human experience, that all children have a natural curiosity and instinct for creative expression, and that art is an experience to be lived and shared. The children at City and Country "make art" rather than "do projects," and the process of using art materials is the focus of the Art Program.
