Cultural Arts

All Cultural Arts classes are process oriented so that the children can explore and express their own ideas without the pressure of creating something that has to look a certain way. The children will make work to take home along with making community projects that will live at WISH. Many of the projects will be in alignment with what the teachers are working on in their classrooms or based on the interests of the children.

In the art making sessions there will often be a focus on materials and ample time given to explore using them. The children will work with various mediums and processes in art to build their knowledge while creating personally satisfying pieces. Some projects will be in response to famous artists, some cultural explorations, and others free creative license. We will also work with the Arts for WISH committee and our community at large to bring guest artists into our classes so that various creative expertise can benefit the children.
