About this Class | Week 2: Shape

Young artists will rip, tear, and smash as they create original art based on the concept of shape.  Our hands-on class is divided into three activities with music and movement incorporated throughout. The shape class is packed with activities! We will begin with collage exploration incorporating a variety of media. Students will connect with real works of art as they explore vocabulary related to shape. Young artists will learn about symmetry and create a Rorschach-style painting. While listening to music, we will hand build shapes in clay. We will then use our shapes for a fine-motor drawing activity.

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.
