“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist when you grow up.”- Pablo Picasso
Artastic art classes are designed to encourage every child to explore, imagine, dream, and enjoy the creative process through different materials and techniques.
These are the goals we share with our children:
• Discover the amazing world of art. Learn how art not only was the first form of communication, but it also has been a universal language.
• Learn and explore different art media using pencils, paint, clay, scissors, and recycled or found objects. We can get really dirty!
• Create an open space for children to express their creativity. Children unlike adults, focus on the process and not on the final product. For us, as adults, the goal is to finish our projects, which is the reason why we undertake any task. Children enjoy so much the planning and the process itself that sometimes they don’t want to finish a project, or once it is finished, they are not attached to it.
• Learn about Art History, including artist biographies, timelines and techniques.
