Abrakadoodle’s core philosophy is that all children are creative and that we need to encourage their imaginations to grow. From the youngest ages, children need reinforcement that there are no right and wrong ways of doing art. In Abrakadoodle art classes, children can learn how to draw, paint, sculpt, design mosaics and collages, take digital photographs, as well as create in the style of Renoir, Picasso, DaVinci, Michelangelo and a host of contemporary and classic artists. Abrakadoodle students actively engage in planning each activity and can infuse their own styles through the choices they make as they create. When the creation phase is completed, the students present their original works to the class, a sharing that is always positive and encourages an appreciation for each person’s perspective. Children benefit from exploring abundant creative materials while experimenting with color, line and form.
