Backtrack: The Colors Of TCAPS Summer

2 Comments

We’re backtracking folks! Back over the course by which we have come. And here we go — from last summer’s art class!

The Children’s Ark Prep School’s 2012 summer workshop  featured arts and crafts that juiced up our young boys and girl’s enterprising minds.  A summer productively spent on creativity and self-expression as kids work on various aptitudes such as molding, painting, sculpting and other crafts.

TCAPS affirms the value of art in the refinement of children’s cognitive and creative skills; strengthening their problem-solving skills; development of their sense of craftmanship; and their tuning in to other important values such as team building and awareness to different cultures and traditions.

What is not art?

Fun with clays

To develop their psychomotor skills, the little ones were, first, given time to have fun with their clays. And later on were made to create yummy “ice creams” on a cone.

Stone-painting

Children were taught to express themselves in the unique art of  stone paintings.

    backtracking is ok! we do a lot of that… it’s important to know the road we came from, and sometimes the significance isn’t realized until later.
