About this Class | Week 6: Value
Young artists will explore ideas related to value and color as they create original works of art. We will connect our experiences to real works of art and to our emotions. Our hands-on class is divided into three activities with music and movement incorporated throughout. Artists will begin with a value exercise in chalk and pastel. We will learn artistic vocabulary and as we use watercolor layers to create value. Students will create value by using additive and subtractive methods. We will revisit the concepts of line and color as we create large-scale works of art.
Our inclusive, positive environment encourages each young artist to create without criticism. Artists will develop both fine and gross motor skills through the use of total body activities and focused work with age-appropriate materials. Open-ended activities ensure that students are not limited by adult expectations. Caregivers will support each young artist’s process while providing them space to explore their capabilities. We are always pleased to see how far children can push materials to create something that is all their own.
About the Creative Destruction Course:
Preschool artists will rip, smash, grind, and tear in this materials-focused class. Students will test the limits of a variety of art materials as they create original works of art. Our open-ended activities allow students to explore their creative capacity by focusing on process over product. Each session will include at least one make-and-take project.
