A World of their own! A Creative Space-

on November 20, 2016

The Art Studio,”The Nest” has been open about a month now. The children are figuring out that they direct the garden, the art, and the process of what occurs in the studio. They now ask to come out to the Studio with me , even the 2 1/2 year olds. It is certainly more difficult for some children to come up with creative ideas , glue, cut, color, paint, or build.  They don’t know HOW to think of unusual ideas, it becomes frustrating and overwhelming  an interesting phenomenon. Some children need a lot of direction from me, a lot more time, some ask to leave to go back to the regular class room, some however, are learning to feel comfortable creating.

Most students LOVE the space and realize it IS different. They are  aware of the different rules and that their ideas are important.  Yesterday, they ask for clay outside to make trees with sticks, stones and leaves.  They migrated  inside to draw and paint. They are beginning to create all types of ART. They are building confidence.img_0004 img_0003 img_0001 img_0003 img_0005 img_0006

NURTURE CREATIVITY-  Reinforce social communication of creative behavior, Construct things, Investigate materials freely, Allow expression to happen.  Develop creative thinking habits and patterns in young children early.

Two teaching methods to STOP:   Elimination of fantasy play, and Educational practices that emphasize learning only what is taught by a teacher.  Teach flexibility and solving problems creatively. Generate innovative ideas.

These children will go up to be a creative workforce for  future jobs.
