Art4Space have been running 3 x Why Art Matters courses this term for 36 children. One more session to go and then the work gets sent to Arts Award for accreditation. I am committed to teach art to pupils of all ages with the purpose of integrating progressive ways of making education an expressive and personal experience of self-discovery and learning life skills. When the children are encouraged to express themselves and take risks in creating art, they develop a sense of innovation that will be important in their lives. I love this qupte from Kohl: “The kind of people society needs to make it move forward are thinking, inventive people who seek new ways and improvements, not people who can only follow directions,” Art is a way to encourage the process and the experience of thinking and making things better! The photos are some of the final pieces ready for exhibition. Children you are my biggest inspiration! Thanks Julie
