Saturday Class

We will encourage girls from Saturday class to try many different materials and help them to foster a spirit of curiosity and exploring. The most important thing in our studio is not to create something pretty, is to create something you enjoy. We will concentrate on open ending activities.

  • Children can learn about different kinds of painting, and understand the differences between them, e.g. water colour, ink painting, acrylic, collage, and sculpture.
  • Establish basic knowledge about the relationship between shape, volume, light and colour.
  • Encourage children to accomplish an art project from concept planning, making and finalising.

Class Plan Term4 2016

Goal:

  • Children can learn about different kinds of painting, and understand the differences between them, e.g. water colour, ink painting, acrylic, collage, and sculpture.
  • Establish basic knowledge about the relationship between shape, volume, light and colour.
  • Encourage children to accomplish an art project from concept planning, making and finalising.

Theme 1: How to play with painting (first part)

We will use these three classes to learn about the different effects of watercolour, ink, and acrylic. Each type of painting requires its own materials and we use the brush and paints in very different ways. Each one will use the material and painting style of that class to create their own painting at class.

Theme 2: Shape and Body (part one)

We will use some elementary geometric knowledge in this period of time. Kids will learn about how did light and shape change the colours, and how can use this knowledge in our painting. And we will also use clay sculpture practice to consolidate this knowledge.

I hope children can practise a logic thinking in their sensational creation.

Theme 3: My first art book

The last theme, we will concentrate on a project: an art book.

Each child will be given one class to do their planning, what is the book about, what is the story, how many pages, what style it is going to be, and make a draft.

Then, they will take two classes to finish the book. I will encourage them to express their idea as clear as possible and complete the book. The most important point of this theme is to experience the whole process of creation which requires creativity, logical thinking, and execution.
