Observe the world, understand what you see, and know how to visualize it. All visual art originates from the same process:
the translation of a mind’s image to a physical representation to share with others. This end result, be it a magical realistic drawing, abstract image of an emotion or spray painted cartoon of an idea, is created following the same ritual. The dance of immaterial brain waves and creative motor skills into a work of art.
Understanding how shadows define a shape, how perspective distorts that shape and how nature’s proportional structure predicts it’s unseen parts, is as essential for realistic reproduction, as colors, contrast and layout are for adding emotional values.
On the creative side, methods and materials provide a wealth of possibilities to explore, impacting both visual and emotional aspects of a project. How to suggest the softness of a velvet coat, the fuzziness of a foggy day, a gust of rain or cloud of dust, all depend on the available methods given the medium used.
The artistic value of the result depends, of course, on the toddlers latent abilities. The acquired skills however – observation, memorization and visualization – can greatly benefit other areas of development. The frame of reference pupils build and calibrate is instrumental for the development of spatial intelligence.
Activities in this workshop range from the basics – managing to direct the chosen medium onto the targeted surface – to advanced – use of sophisticated techniques, understanding perspective, proportions and ratio and the use of tools as protractor, pair of compasses or projector.
