As we start a new school year I am thrilled to provide children the opportunity to embrace art. I do not pretend to think that my instruction will create another Picasso or Michelangelo. However I do believe that instruction and exploration in the arts will provide a child with a life long appreciation for the arts as well as enable them to see and interpret the world around them.
Noted art educator Elliot Eisner and the National Art Education Association have provided a great flyer about 10 Lessons the Arts Teach. Click on the link or pick up a hard copy available in the art room during open-house.
Finally, I look forward to giving your children a chance to be creative, develop crazy ideas and embrace those happy accidents that are bound to happen in the art room! And if the spirit moves you, with a simple phone call you can join in the fun.
