Wonderful World of Children's Art

Children's Art is a Unique and Wonderful World

This is some of my students work when I was teaching summer school at a school for the artistically talented.
We were working on using unusual materials and mixed media art. I showed them how to do simple photo transfer, gave them a few ideas, piled unique materials on a table, and let them go...see what wonderful things they made!

A trip to the hardware store provided most of these unusual and usually non-tradional art materials.

Letting children have freedom to express themselves, solve problems and have time to experience the artistic process results in not only an end product, but building critical thinking skills.
You can see in the photo's how involved the students are, totally absorbed. As a teacher I can tell you that is a unique thing to have in a classroom and a good thing!
