Critical Thinking

Process based art is about freedom not rules. When we practice process art we are more interested in    how the art is being created than what the finished product is going to look like.  Process art links strongly to science discovery. You are trying out materials, ideas and feelings, and discovering possibilities.

·        How does this paint work / change / react?

·        Why does this happen?

·        I wonder what would happen if...?

This kind of art is about thinking. Artists work hard, take risks, make connections, daydream, turn old ideas into new ones, look at things closely, notice details, see the big picture, generate ideas, and try new things.

Some skills that we will touch on during our time together: fine motor skills, gross motor skills and coordination, sensory exploration, literacy, math, science, language, art history, creativity and self-expression, art techniques, risk-taking and spatial reasoning.

That all sounds really artsy and fancy but essentially, we're giving the kids a chance to explore, be artists, and realize that there are no mistakes in art just happy accidents!

Brenna Silveria has a BFA in Design from UMASS Amherst with a Minor in Art History. She runs a small   interior design studio as well as an art studio where she provides art classes for kids.
