    What all do you have in your art centers for a 3/4 year old classroom?

    We follow ecers and I have all the requirements but when my director evaluated my centers she scored art center very low! The center I thought was lacking (science) got a high score!
    I have the following:
    Pencils
    Colored pencils
    Crayons
    Markers
    Scissors
    Collage materials including googly eyes, pompoms, pipe cleaners, jewels, tissue paper, cupcake liners, etc
    Hole punches
    Tape dispenser
    Felt pieces
    "Clean junk" like cardboard and applesauce cups for 3d art
    Paper 2 different kinds
    Glue bottles and sticks
    Tempers paint sticks
    Water colors
    Playdough and tools
    Easel with tempera paint

    I also have a writing center with pencils, paper, dry erase boards and markers and each child has binder for name writing practice.

    All items have their own containers and are labeled. What else can I add??

    What suggestions did your director give you? Is the center self guide/choice? Do you change up materials periodically?

    She didn't offer any suggestions and when I asked she just said it needed improvement. The center is self choice and I do change out the materials monthly. For this month I have red and green paper, Christmas hole punches, Christmas stamps and ink pads, peppermint playdough with Christmas cutters. But I also have regular paper, playdough cutters, etc.

    Next month I will replace the Christmas themed stuff with winter theme, glitter to make icicles, and shaving cream.

    That's a lot more than I ever had or did to my Art Center when I taught Pre-K!
    I'd just keep doing what you're doing until she tells you specific things to change or improve.
    "It needs improvement" doesn't help you at all.
