“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~Pablo Picasso
This course is about engaging children in discussion around topics related to art or famous pieces of art. For instance, children may read a storybook such as ‘The Lion and the Little Bird’ or ‘Something Beautiful’ and discuss questions such as “What is art?”, “What relationship does art have to nature?”, “What makes something beautiful?”. Through the process of exploring, examining, and expressing freely, we create different paintings, drawings, crafts or collage and make them our own.
