ART

“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves, rather than like everyone else.”

BUDDHA BOARDS

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”.

“I am making a person. It’s me, the person I am making is me. I am getting ready to go to sleep. My toothbrush is there laying on the counter.”

“I was thinking of making, wanting to make little circles and fill them in.”

 

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
