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.
