Very little emphasis is put on the Visual Arts in most schools today, and yet a strong grounding in the Visual Arts can help to develop many higher order thinking skills, that are vital for success in today’s world, such as:
- critical thought
- creativity and imagination
- the capacity for problem posing and solving
- cooperative decision-making
- an improved understanding of other cultures, places and times
Here is what we do
- Noctiluna runs a very popular Visual arts Summer camp in Vienna VA.
- If you are a school/organization interested in a one or two hour Visual Art workshop, I can travel to you.
I am happy to have a chat with you about the kind of workshop you would be interested in, and work closely with you to get things happening. Don’t be scared to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org ( no matter how wacky your ideas are!).
For ideas, check out the pages on preschool workshops, and grade school camps, and see what I have been up to.
