Make, Play, Everyday
Integrating Playful Art Experiences into the Lives of Young Children
Kate recently published a book of ways to engage children in making art in every room in the house. The book features easy activities that mostly use things you already have - things like cardboard, magazines, newspapers, and fabric scraps. Click here to read it or print a copy!
A Message from Art Teacher Kate Gugliotta
My belief is that regardless of background or ability, art serves as the common thread that unites us all through personal experience and exploration. The art room is a place where students can explore their creativity, communicate nonverbally, and enjoy working with a curriculum that discovers a variety of materials, themes, and ideas. All classes will explore drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, and collage throughout the year.
One of my favorite things to do with the classes is to explore all of the amazing arts resources we have in New York City! We have joined forces with the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art by continuing partnerships that bring many of our students to the museums a couple of times per year coupled with visiting artists who visit our art classroom.
