Hi Art Scholars,
Art is so much more than creating something "right" or perfect. Art is about trying to create and enjoying the process. This amazing story shares the journey of one little boy as he searches for his joy in creating art. Please enjoy the story Ish by Peter Reynolds.
Now, let’s be inspired to draw Ish-ly. Get out your pastels (or crayons) and watercolors. Using loose lines and free shapes draw something Ish-ly or click the link below to draw a simple vase drawing with Ms. Rees.
Art gives children an outlet to express themselves and an activity in which they can create things that they are proud of. When children create and share their art, they develop self-esteem from experiencing opportunities to make something unique, expressing their feelings and imagination, and receiving praise and critique from those around them.
