College Montrose Children’s Place Family Art Program Exhibition

College Montrose Children’s Place Family Art Program Exhibition 

January 30 – February 25, 2017 | First Floor Vitrines

This exhibit was created by children who participated in CMCP’s Family Art program that ran at 5 of our locations. Our Family Art Program is designed to engage families in new creative activities that encourage interest in the arts and demonstrate how the arts contribute to important small motor, cognitive and sensory development.

Through the arts children develop their sense of self and build self-esteem, while developing school readiness skills by gaining experience with independent play, routines and sharing.
