Land Art Curriculum for 3yrs+
We believe that every child is an Artist. Naturally Creative, is a unique Contemporary Art Curriculum that stimulates children to express themselves with natural materials giving them a rich perception of the world and developing their sense of aesthetics.
Naturally Creative is a Contemporary Art curriculum that develops children sense of aesthetics by applying innovative art techniques inspired by the masters of Land Art. The curriculum is subdivided into a series of studies that focuses on major works of the Land Art using: sticks, stones, mud, leaves, pinecones and anything you can find in the outdoors! Children learn how to identify the basic elements of art from form, color, shape, pattern and texture as they create their own Art Portfolio.
The study is accompanied by the Teacher's Guide that empowers the teacher to talk intelligently about Land Art and recognize the creative process, acknowledging with confidence the value in the children’s creative output. A balance is created between exploration and knowing when to stop the creative process once the work has reached its optimum aesthetic value, turning you from a teacher to an Art Curator of your children’s work!
