Beautiful Oopsies: Exploring the Creativity of Open-Ended Art Experiences

Creativity is intelligence having fun! Alberta Einstein had it right with his quote on creativity. Children are natural artists, as all their masterpieces are a visual representation of how they see the world around them. Let us foster this self expression through open-ended creative art experiences! For children, the focus on art is the process of creativity, not the end result. This is what our focus of this session is all about…the process of play with art (not crafts). Let’s dive into the creative world of what art is for children and how we can be more responsive to their creative needs and expressions. Say good bye to those handprint crafts and cut out projects that take us hours to prepare. Open ended art is about getting messy! It’s about exploring with all our senses and having a creative outlet for thoughts, ideas and emotions. As early childhood educators, it’s our role to provide materials and a space for creativity and inspiration, so the children can be mighty artists! So, let’s explore how we can do this and ensure that children have the opportunity to enjoy the creative journey and show us their colorful world!


  • Define creativity & art
  • Differences between crafts and open-ended art
  • Create a responsive curriculum and environment that nurtures children’s creative interests
  • Spark your creativity for open ended art experiences
