These encounters will focus on media exploration by working with various drawing tools and personal expression of themes that relate directly to their experiences and lives. Noting that observational drawing is not the only form of good drawing practice, children in this course will have opportunities to work observation and recollection as well as expanding drawing vocabularies by working from memory and imagination as a means of creative expression of ideas and feelings. ENCOUNTERS WITH PAINTING: Painting is full of surprises for young children. Exploring, expressing, and experimenting with paint allows opportunity for learning about colors and how to mix them as well as an excellent opportunity for the development of a personal symbolic communication. In this course students will have repeated experiences with the fully expressive medium as they discover various kinds of paint, multiple tools for applying wet media and investigating different surfaces. This course is about the process yet undoubtedly will have special value to the children as it will be a means for vivid representation of their innermost ideas and feeling.
