“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves, rather than like everyone else.”
Drawing on Buddha boards provides an opportunity for children to use a different approach to drawing. Using fine motor, the application is a softer touch. Children come to discover how much pressure to apply to obtain a variety of brush strokes. Buddha boards also create a sense of calm focus.
“And then it disappears and we can start over again”.
REFLECTIVE ART / PAINTING IN THE FOREST
Using sticks, rocks, leaves, pinecones and branches to paint on canvas.
“Nature inspires creativity in a child by demanding visualization and the full use of the senses… In nature, a child finds freedom, fantasy, privacy…”
– Last Child in the Woods, Richard Louv
