My goal is to share with young people the creative art process from concept to completion. Hands-on art experiences invite all kids to have fun as they flex their creative muscles and think like artists. Children learn about a medium and process. They explore, experiment, problem solve and give form to their idea; communicating visually through their art.
Young Audiences Artist in Residence Goals:
•Students will learn about composition, color, contrast, and shapes.
•The processes, tools and experiences give them a broader understanding and increased self-confidence as they expand their technical and visual vocabulary.
•To develop patience, persistence and problem solving skills to see a project through to completion.
•When making painted papers, students explore color mixing, different brush strokes, and ways of creating texture with paint. In the collage session, they consider color, contrast and proportion, as they cut shapes, overlap and assemble parts to create their artwork.
Working together to concept and create an art piece with the PYP approach to learning. Using skills, concepts, attitudes and knowledge.
