Nurturing creativity – Home School Journal

As a child, I had a deep passion for art, finding it therapeutic and a means of exploring new worlds with my imagination. The desire to experiment with various artistic endeavours always intrigued me. Eventually, I had the opportunity to share this enchantment with future minds when I was offered a position as an art teacher at a homeschooling environment that values and nurtures creativity. Commencing with the fundamentals, I encouraged students to embrace the concept that simplicity often holds more significance. Starting with primary colours, I provided them with minimal materials to instil the habit that less can be more. 

Over the past three months, the students have evolved into adept creators, mastering the art of mixing colours to enhance their artistic landscapes. Our initial project involved blending dark hues to craft galaxies on canvas using sponges.

For the subsequent phase, I introduced quarter circles for the young artists to create planetary orbits. The children enthusiastically selected multi-coloured buttons for each of their eight planets and skilfully sewed them onto their artworks.
