art education

Parents are getting their children to study music to reap the many benefits that are attributed to it.

Art can provide kids with an easier way to express themselves since children are more naturally artistic and creative.
 
Rohan (12 years) was at it again that morning.
Puppets as educational tool serve as animated symbols of thoughts, feelings and experiences. Research interests are directed towards the puppet´s meaning and significance by the activity´s subjective product in the human activity. By illuminating the puppet’s communicative properties, the aim of my research is to develop knowledge about the puppet`s relational, linguistic and actionrelated potential as a mediating tool in preschool and school education.
 
It is amazing that hardly 10-days go by without my meeting someone who has fond memories of my grandparents, Geoffrey and Laura Kendal, and their theatre company, Shakespeareana, that would annually visit schools across the country bringing the magic of Shakespeare, Bernard Shaw and other contemporary playwrights to school and college children. The experience of these performances left an indelible impression on a generation of English school-going children. This was in the 1950’s and ‘60’s.
My USP to generate interest in art stems from a simple understanding that art is within you as good as it is around you. I have adopted the method of making the student understand, respect and experience the values and ethics of the process of art and culminating this whole process into a product. The best method to start art with any young budding minds is sand art or a collage using wastes around you. I have personally seen a tremendous positive impact on the young minds in being interested in art through this activity.
I write this article asking a few questions and giving some possible answers.
 
Why do I teach art?
I teach art because light, colour, form, texture, lines and strokes have such an enduring impact on me that I want to share my joy and experiences with the children.

What is Art ?
It is a holistic visual experience involving a multi – sensory dimension. If for understanding we break it up into the various senses involved then we are talking of:
a) the visual experience via the eyes

Imaginative thinking may not be considered a skill, but it is more basic than most art skills. It is very difficult to teach in junior classes. They have their own fantasies in the art world. Entering this world is not an easy task. At the beginning of their art learning, some teacher may have asked them to draw some shape or fill up this shape with colour or to draw straight lines. Sometimes, they find this very boring and become less interested in their art classes.
