Recess PlayWorks Process Art Summer Camp

 

This summer, get the kids off the screens by allowing them a space to be creative and let their imaginations soar! 

Recess PlayWorks  has developed a program embracing the philosophy of “Process Art” a movement that started in the 1960’s and focuses more on the “making” and the “experience of creating” art, rather than on the final project itself. Essentially, “the art is in the creating”.  We want kids to follow their own instincts and creative whims to create and express themselves freely. The beautiful part is that in the end of the process the kids have wonderful finished pieces that they are excited about and feel confident in their abilities! Here at At Recess PlayWorks we know kids have been on too many screens during this year so we want them to reignite their sense of exploration and wonder and unleash their creativity again in a fun and safe environment! 


What is Process Art?

Process Art (prō,ses ärt), 

an artistic movement where the end product of art and craft, the objet d’art (work of art/found object), is not the principal focus; the process of its making is one of the most relevant aspects if not the most important one: the gathering, sorting, collating, associating, patterning, and moreover the initiation of actions and proceedings. Process artists saw art as pure human expression. Process art defends the idea that the process of creating the work of art can be an art piece itself.

 What are the benefits of process art?

There are so many benefits to process art! Process art is developmentally appropriate for young children because meets them where they are as sensory explorers.


Through process art, children...

- will think creatively, independently, and imaginatively

- will learn about the physical limitations and possibilities of materials.

- are encouraged to use creative and critical thinking skills.

- will gain confidence to realize their own ideas.

- are motivated to ask questions and experiment.

- will embrace experimentation and mistakes as part of the learning process.


Art is a Messy Process!

- Each week will take your child through a journey of exploring new materials and ways to use them.

- The focus will be on the process not the final piece.

- The projects may be combined to create a final piece.

- On Fridays we will have an open studio/finish up class and celebrate with Pizza?? And a mini art

show for our Amazing artists!

  • Kids will get messy! Please don’t send them in their best clothes.
