Bligh Park Community Hall

Weeks 1-2: Introduction to Art Basics

The initial two weeks of the program will focus on introducing primary-aged participants to the fundamentals of art expression. Children will explore various art materials, learn basic techniques, and experiment with colors and textures. The goal is to lay the foundation for creative expression, fostering a sense of curiosity and confidence in their artistic abilities.

Outcomes:

  • Familiarity with art supplies and tools.

  • Basic understanding of color theory and mixing.

  • Improved fine motor skills through hands-on activities.

Weeks 3-4: Themed Art Exploration

In the following weeks, participants will engage in themed art exploration sessions. Each class will revolve around a specific theme, such as nature, emotions, or dreams. Children will be encouraged to express their interpretations of the theme through various art mediums. This approach promotes imaginative thinking, allowing participants to connect their emotions and ideas with artistic creations.

Outcomes:

  • Enhanced creativity and imagination.

  • Development of personal storytelling through art.

  • Exposure to diverse art mediums and techniques.

Weeks 5-6: Collaborative Art Projects

The final weeks will emphasize collaborative art projects, fostering teamwork and communication. Participants will work together to create larger artworks, encouraging the exchange of ideas and mutual support. This collaborative approach not only enhances social skills but also reinforces the notion that art can be a shared and inclusive experience.

Outcomes:

  • Improved teamwork and communication skills.

  • Understanding of the value of cooperation in art creation.

  • Creation of a group art piece showcasing individual contributions.

Throughout the 6-week term:

  • Reflection and Discussion: Each class will include time for reflection and discussion, allowing participants to share their thoughts and feelings about their art creations. This promotes self-awareness and the ability to articulate personal experiences through art.

  • Exhibition Day: The program will conclude with an exhibition day where participants can showcase their favorite pieces to their peers and families, fostering a sense of pride and accomplishment.

  • Take-Home Art Kit: Participants will receive a take-home art kit with basic supplies and suggested activities to continue their artistic exploration beyond the program.

This 6-week art expression program aims to provide a comprehensive and enriching experience, fostering creativity, collaboration, and self-expression in primary-aged children.
