BYU Finger Painting Challenge Gallery

Kevin J Worthen, BYU president, along with Mary Anne Prater, McKay School of Education dean, and Michael Tunnell, Teacher Education Department chair, participated in a statewide finger painting challenge as part of the Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration of young learners. They painted side by side with preschoolers from the BYU Child and Family Studies Laboratory Tuesday morning.

The Week of the Young Child is sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This year the Utah System of Higher Education Early Childhood Committee and the Utah division of NAEYC have collaborated to raise awareness of the importance of “celebrating our youngest learners,” which is the theme for this year’s Week of the Young Child.

The BYU community also participated in the finger painting challenge and in other activities that illustrated the importance of early childhood education.
