Curiosity cube inspires masterpieces at West Downs Day Nursery
Budding young artists from West Downs Day Nursery in Winchester have been inspired to create their very own masterpieces after practitioners introduced a ‘curiosity cube’ to the setting.
The curiosity cube is filled with art materials and surrounded by books which aim to introduce children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Romsey Road to famous artists and their individual signature styles.
Once the resources have been explored, children are able to showcase their talents by taking a blank canvas home from nursery in order to create their own work of art with their parents.
West Downs Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Jack Meekings explained;
“The curiosity cube has really sparked the children’s interest and imaginations which is brilliant to see, and we are already seeing fantastic results. Not only does this stimulate the brain, but helps to develop fine motor skills through the actions of painting and drawing.”
