Objectives
In this program, students will be focusing on how to improve these core skills:

  • Speaking: learn new vocabulary, answer questions and engage in classroom discussion with peers; For example: “I am using the smaller round brush.” “My favorite artist is Monet, who is your favorite artist?”
  • Creativity and self-expression: students will utilize their creative mindset to apply self-expression in each lesson by creating art that represents a thought or memory and is based on exploration.
  • Problem-solving: in each lesson students will apply hands-on practice of skills in reasoning and understanding. How do I make this? How can I draw this? What colors can I make when I mix two different ones together?
  • Perspective: consider a situation from a different point of view and put yourself in the other person’s position to imagine what you would feel, think, or do. Students will learn about and apply perspective when looking at famous artworks, artists’ lives, or examining and discussing their peer’s artwork.
