CSN ARTSPACE GALLERY EXHIBITION
“2018 Art of the Young Child”
Friday, April 13, through Saturday, April 28, 2018
North Las Vegas Campus – Artspace Gallery
Charleston Campus – “I” Building Lobby

The College of Southern Nevada Department of Fine Arts will host an exhibition of artwork created by students of the CSN Early Childhood Education Laboratory Program. This exhibition, a collection of artwork by children ages 6 months through 5 years, utilizes a variety of media and expresses the thoughts, emotions, and creative explorations of its young artists. “2018 Art of the Young Child” will begin Friday, April 13, and will run through Saturday, April 28, 2018.
“Art is a vital part of the Early Childhood curriculum,” says Janis Fikes-Buntjer, ECE Laboratory Program Director. “Children of all ages are given time and access each day to explore and manipulate a wide range of art materials. As children explore – they learn. They learn about physical properties of the media; they learn problem-solving skills; they learn social skills; they develop motor skills; and they learn creative ways to express themselves – most importantly they learn that ART IS FUN!”
CSN’s Early Childhood Education Lab Program is a nationally accredited preschool, kindergarten and childcare program for children ages 6 months through 5 years. As a model for “best practice” in Early Childhood Education, the ECE Lab Program provides CSN students, participating parents, and the local Early Childhood community, opportunities for observation and practice.
This exhibition is featured in conjunction with the CSN Early Childhood Education Program and Artin celebration of the National Association of the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) “Week of the Young Child,” April 16 – April 20, 2018. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

Cheyenne Avenue, North Las Vegas, as well as in the “I” Building, First Floor, Main Corridor, on the Charleston campus, located at 6375 W. Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas.
