Art Exhibition Evening Sun 14th December, 2014
To everyone who attended our EcoKids Art evening, I am sure you will agree that it was a fantastic, fun filled evening. The snacks provided by the parents were amazing and the weather was perfect.
The teachers put on an incredible display of the children’s art.
At this young age, the process of creating their art is far more important than the finished product. They need to learn how to manipulate equipment, discover textures and different medium. They experiment with colour, construction, dry art, wet art and different concepts. All the things we as adults call art.
Creativity as an outlet for young children to express themselves is so important. To see the concentration and pride, the intense pleasure and satisfaction that happens in our art studio on a daily basis makes it my favourite space in the school.
It takes creative people to have vision and genius like my teachers have displayed this year. So I insisted on all the teachers and assistants showcasing their own talents too. I must say, it was so wonderful to have a good excuse to prioritise my creative work.
Thank you to all who took the time to make marble fish for their children and engage in the fun of syringe painting and nature painting. It is lovely to let go and let your inner artist out!
We look forward to next year’s event and I am already thinking that this year is going to be a tough act to follow!
