“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picasso
This course is about introducing great artists to children and exploring their lives and arts. We watch (parts of) documentary videos of their lives, study their works and have a discussion. Through the process of exploring, examining, and expressing freely, we then create different paintings, drawings, crafts or collage related to the chosen artist and make them our own. Some of these artists are: Van Gogh, Klimt, Anne Whitney, Matisse, and Dali.
