We’ve Been Busy!
Although you haven’t heard from us in awhile, Barnstone Art for Kids has undergone huge transformations in order to benefit youth in our local community for more long-term program. With the continued success of our one-on-one mentoring, small group mentoring, and classroom programs (among the distribution of crisis kits and art kits), Barnstone Art for Kids is excited to announce the expansion of our traditional 6 week program. We will begin a full year curriculum beginning January 15th! Made up of 5 blocks, each block lasting 6 weeks, the full year curriculum hosts our traditional program: Here, There, Everywhere, along with 4 new programs:
Elements of Art: Focusing on the basic elements of art such as Line, Shape, Color, Value, Texture and Space
We Can Work it Out: Letting the kids get WILD while crafting band instruments, exploring dance, making puppets, playing games, drawing sidewalk grafitti, and more!
A Whole New Mind: Inspired by the work of Daniel Pink, we discover 6 new senses our bodies are capable of- Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play and Meaning
Principles of Design: Moving towards more challenging tools in fine art, we explore Pattern, Contrast, Balance, Scale, Rhythm/Movement and Variety
This summer, we have been actively providing program through local community centers in an effort to test our new projects as well as connect with children and allow them to express their creativity. By refining our Power of Art program, Barnstone Art for Kids is uniquely qualified to use the Power of Art to help children with a shaken sense of security to heal, cope and grow.
