DISCOVERING PEOPLE (2016)

In a series of art workshops children (age 4-12) will learn how to draw, paint and construct people in action. These experiences will stimulate children’s awareness of the various actions and functions of the human figure.

The program is devoted to fostering children’s innate natural artistic ability. In this project, children will be provided with art materials, tools and necessary guidance/instruction for each art session. Children won’t be instructed how to create adult-like art pieces. They will be strongly encouraged to implement their own ideas.

This project is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Program, with public funds provided through the New York State Council on the Arts with support from the Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State Legislature.

PUPPETS IN ART* (2015)

In a series of art workshops children (age 3-12) will learn how to make different kind of puppets. Puppetry requires encountering and experiencing many art forms, which can enhance the learning experience. It encourages interaction, fosters imagination and facilitates a dialogue. Children can believe and relate to puppets, which are both entertaining and captivating. They discover a way of expressing themselves without the heat being on them, as all eyes and ears are turned on the puppet.
