Join us for a fun and interactive art party where we celebrate individual creativity and artistic expression! In the first half of the class, each student will have an opportunity to share at least one piece of art they created in the last week and answer audience questions about their pieces. In the second half, we will embark on a creative journey together by engaging in collaborative art-making activities. We will focus on process over product, and explore different art techniques and...
This class is taught in English.
In this class, my goals are to provide a platform for students to showcase and discuss their recent art projects and creations, foster a supportive and encouraging environment for artistic sharing, explore different art techniques and mediums through collaborative art-making activities, and promote creativity, self-expression, and imagination in the art-making process.
I employ a Montessori approach to art. This philosophy encourages freedom, within limits. Allowing elementary students to express their ingenuity through art creation and sharing builds several important skill sets, including (but not limited to) visualization, turn-taking, patience, curiosity, and empathy. When exposed to different art activities students are likely to find the art domain they enjoy, creating endless future opportunities for healthy expression of emotion and imagination. When children find the right art experience for them, they become independent as they actively choose to practice these skills. When elementary students work independently on art, they also intuitively self regulate their own stress. Independent working students can also reach creative flow states! Practicing emotional regulation and flow-state focus through art is important for everyone, but it can be especially helpful for neurodivergent children. I bring a lifelong passion for art and several years of experience running this class independently. I've witnessed art's positive impact on children of all ages and walks of life. My expertise lies in fostering confidence, facilitating sharing, and guiding collaborative art-making activities. Let me share my knowledge and enthusiasm for art with your learner!
