Danforth Art Reception

Children in grades K-5 were inspired by a weekly question designed to promote curiosity and critical thinking. The Danforth featured nine different questions such as How was that made? and What time is it?

Curiosity is the first element necessary to think like an artist. When we wonder about the world around us, we are always learning, always exploring, always discovering. Artists spend a lot of time looking closely, wondering why, and using creative expression to explore pathways to understanding.

Children in grades 6-8 enjoyed classes designed around specific artistic materials and methods, developing skills and concepts. Class topics included: Comics, Cartoons, & Manga, Prints & Collage, Sculpture Explored, Painting & Drawing and new this year, Fashion Design.
