This ongoing M/W/F class will begin each day with an introduction to one new contemporary artwork (shown in a major art museum). Kids will make art in response to the featured art work, based on multiple suggested possibilities. During art making, I will begin a conversation about the art presented; towards supporting their process, as well as responding to questions, ideas, thoughts, feelings that come up. Focus is on process, not product. There will an emphasis on art projects and discussions that address the development of SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) skills such as communication and understanding, social engagement, relationship building, problem-solving, identifying emotions, recognizing strengths, self-confidence, self-efficacy, as well as teaching kids to embrace diversity. I will be encouraging kids to share their art with their family.
