TPS Arts Appreciation for Young Explorers

Pre-K to Grade 5 weekly video art projects plus virtual art parties!

The full title of this course is History Makers – Arts Appreciation and Exploration for Young Explorers. We take a look at artists (of many mediums) from all over the world, past and present, and get messy with a creative activity for our hands and minds. This course develops little learners’ Critical Thinking skills through the Visible Thinking method. We also cover the elements of art on a beginning level. While we learn to view and appreciate different art forms from all over the world, our activities are all based in the visual arts. With young students in mind, this course takes a process-based approach in that we are more interested in the process of creating than we are in the finished product.

The supplies list is minimal and the weekly streamed video lessons are short and sweet for the sake of our younger students’ need to be doing rather than watching. In addition to the weekly activities done when it is convenient to you, there are also monthly opportunities to gather for a live Virtual Art Party. This will be a time to connect in real time and do an activity together. By getting to know “History Makers” from all over the world, we are learning to love all the people and cultures on this earth — and growing into the History Makers we were each meant to be!
