Ever wondered how students can learn to be great artists? Believe or not, they already are. In Our Class, we have a wonderful artist who comes in to help teach art. Not only is she a great artist but she encourages the students to all play a part.
What everyone needs to learn is not to criticize others’ artistic work. After all, what is good art and what is bad art? Believe it or not, van Goph only sold one painting in his whole life and considered himself a failure. If only he knew where his paintings would end up and how much each one would sell for.
We encourage students to put their best effort into each piece of work and performance they do. As long as this is done, what more can one ask of someone else? We’re not all going to be a Leonardo da Vinci, Mozart, or a Tom Hanks but we’ll sure have a lot of fun using them as inspirations.
