We develop the Whole Child We Do More Than Just Draw
In our studio, we practice the 8 Habits of Minds.
From " Studio Thinking" By: Lois Hetland
Improving your art skills through practice. Learning to organize and care for your art materials, tools, and art making space.
Picture ideas in your head plan the next steps in your mind as you work. Ask yourself: what will my art be about? What materials will I use? How big will it be? How long will it take?
Learning to create works that convey an idea, feeling, or personal meaning. Your expression changes with your choice of: Ideas, Media, and Techniques.
Learning about art history, see how contemporary artists make art, understand the roles of artists, galleries and museums.
Taking time to notice details in your environment through sight, touch, taste, sound and smell.
Looking back on the work you have done, it may include sharing verbally and/or writing.
Stretch and Explore
Trying things that might be difficult and discovering new ideas and ways of working.
Engage and Persist
Focus on your work and stick with it, even when it gets hard.
