Hello Winter Camp friends!
So today let's talk about talking about artists! Have you seen our poster why art is good?
"Art skills are increasingly linked with long-term professional success. Art forces children to engage in out of the box thinking and can help them hone their creative problem-solving skills."
And... it is fun!
Did you know many of our instructors were 4Cats kids when they were little? We love this sooooo much! Even if art is not their major life goal they remember how fun 4Cats is and loved learning about art and artists!
So why do we learn about artists too?
Learning about art history around the world will help your students be culturally aware, more compassionate, and might even make their love for learning blossom.
Learning art techniques and being inspired by artists that came before us help us become more creative and develop our own individual style! You get to hear great things we humans do and how these artists followed their heart through their journey to finding what they wanted to spend their life doing!
During the camp, kids will learn some amazing artist facts and watch artist video cartoons WE MADE!
Want a sneak peek of our camp artist info videos? Check out these artist video trailers!
Each day is a surprise artist! The only day we are going to reveal the SECRET artist is Friday because the kids will be studying JACKSON POLLOCK which means extreme fun, extreme mess and extreme excitement. OLD CLOTHES AND SHOES ONLY! I REPEAT OLD CLOTHES AND SHOES ONLY!
As we said each day is a surprise artist! Please don't ask - we really want it to be a surprise! Kids like surprises! We like surprises!
If you really want your kids to learn more about artists, during our 10 Week Winter Session we set up a curriculum artist wall for them to get immersed into the life of the artist we are talking about and we have lots more artist facts to share over the 10 weeks.
And... for even more value, the kids receive an artist book, and a sure conversation starter artist badge to proudly wear. They receive a trading card when all their projects are done and access to our artist focus video for you to watch with them at home! You will have home access for 5 days after the end of class!
