Class Project starting to take shape
Art Carnival, Victor D'Amico style. That's what FBCS art students will experience next week during class. D'Amico (1960) believed the art experience should consist of two areas, "the first for motivating the child, the second for his participation in an art activity" (p. 34).. To recreate D'Amico's method we will explore art toys in the library before entering the art room. The toys, designed to involve the student in concepts of color, texture, pattern, and rhythm will stimulate creative thinking. Next the students will enter the Studio-Workshop, the art classroom, where stations will be set up for painting, clay, and collage.
