Art plays important role in a child’s life when it is introduced at early age. It enhances a child’s perception, thought process, expression, and appreciation to better himself/herself as they grow up. Learning art from an early age will help a child to express their feelings in a positive manner, leading to a happier childhood and an improvement in hand-eye coordination, comprehension, and imaginative development. The goal is to introduce art and have students engage themselves on a daily basis to get familiar with it.
The students will be introduced to artists, art history, and will be working in different mediums(paint, pencils, crayons, clay, etc.) as well as learning about colors, shapes, perspective, and light and shadow contrast. The students will work on projects which involve planning, execution and time management. The projects will vary in medium, timeline, subject and some will be done individually or in groups of two or more. All projects will be presented and there will be critique time to listen and to voice oneself. The art lessons will support a child’s individuality and also will further enhance their creativity and strength.
