We provide children with the necessary tools to discover the world of art through second language immersion and bilingual instruction.
Through open ended activities, we introduce our kiddos to a variety of art techniques and media employed by famous artists from around the world. Our focus is letting kiddos enjoy and experience their own artistic process, especially with the little ones. We talk about renowned artists like Remedios Varo, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and others. Image books and short stories are a fun tool to incorporate and weave cultural and historical connections into the program. Although well planned and content specific, our bilingual art sessions: art studio in Spanish - art studio in German - art studio in French, take on an almost organic flow and emphasize play and self expression.
We present our art-kiddos with different creative invitations and set materials for: drawing, painting, portraits, still life, landscapes and mixed media exploration.
Our materials include watercolors, tempera, markers, crayon, pastel, pastel and pencil. Glue and different type of recycled objects and elements that we gather in nature.
