THROUGH THE CREATIVE PROCESS OF VISUAL ARTS
Picasso said "Learn the rules like a pro so you can break them like an artist"
Our system didn't invent the fundamentals we just organize them. What a relief!
Start with a blank paper, use materials available, find the resources to turn it into a work of art takes our mind on a journey of inquiry, decision making and problem solving; skills highly needed in our society.
Identifying and expressing our feelings lead us to a better understanding of our actions and helps us understand others.
"Understanding is a requirement for healthy living."
-Dr Tommie Radd
"Grow with Guidance"
Why do we make art alone? And who do we become when we're left to?
It takes others to find out we're all in this together! We need each other to find out about ourselves, to guide us,helps us learn, and connect us to finding our way in a safe community where social skills are practiced.
