ART IS FUNDAMENTAL
This class is about learning through fun. In addition to creating art, the children will also go on adventures around the world as they learn about the art, the country , the time period and the customs. We also focus on the traditions, techniques and environmental influences of the time period.
I do not follow an exact timeline but instead begin with ancient cultures and see examples of how their art and designs are reflected in contemporary art. We explore the connection between Art, Science and the Humanities . Art develops skills in observation , experimentation, research , critical thinking and problem solving and above all a "can do attitude". The children love a challenge and have a great sense of accomplishment when the projects are completed. Many of the artists in the course have overcome disabilities and limitations to create great works of art.Their persoan journey,perseverance and resourcefulness are important parts of each lesson.
