CREATIVE WAYS TO USE THE ART IN THE CLASSROOM

The 21st century children needs capabilities that enable them to encode visual concepts through creating art and to decode meaning by responding to society images, ideas, and media which permeate our increasingly complex world.The needs for visual literacy, social collaboration, problem-solving skills, and moral development is what a lot are talking about now in education.Art brings to teaching and learning the benefits of artistic thinking, process, and creativity.

This approach to teaching also called for students to work in teams, use their background knowledge of contexts of various subject knowledge, and to develop multiple solutions for real-life problems in ways that require both analysis and synthesis.A creative classroom is a good platform for students to stimulate their extracurricular talents and grow up as creative persons through above skills listed above.

A good teacher can utilize different strategies to teach difficult subjects by integrating it with arts. This is a better way of enhancing their interest for learning and makes them more alive in classrooms.This is the right phase to mould them into better creative persons and open them a world of artistry.with art, children are able to communicate without having to be very proficient writers. If they can successfully communicate something through art they will be more inclined to want to learn how to communicate that same message through writing.

Art stimulates their minds and encourages them.WHAT SHOULD BE THE AIM OF ART IN YOUR CLASSROOM

E enjoyment
E engagement
E enthusiastic for learningChildren who have an environment in which to express themselves through art and play will likely be happy in school and develop positive attitudes toward the subject matterMosaics:

Learning about new shapes is more fun with mosaics. This is an indirect way of bringing arts to classrooms and students find it really interesting to study about shapes with a deeper understanding.

The young minds can use mosaics method to get introduced to new shapes with hands on experience.

Whether it is paper, cellophane or glass, students can have some creative time in framing new patternsSo let’s us have a look at different ways to bring arts and creativity in classrooms and learn how this strategy is going to help them learn better.

Are you still with meIf you run a thematic curriculum in your school, there is no better way to introduce the topics in the classroom. The art is the driver to thematic in the school environment.

From display
To classroom Decoration and moreImagine having a theme that integrate art and science, in the process children create tie-dye to make products like bag, dairy cover and T-shirts for themselves when the parents visit. This experience will never erase from the children’s memory likewise the parents. Try to incorporate the art to interpret all your themes.Next

Thematic curriculumWITHIN THE SCHOOL THERE SHOULD BE A VARIETY OF TYPES OF DISPLAY:

Child-Created Bulletin Boards
Seasonal Celebration Display Board
Memory Bulletin Board
Research-Based or Theme Bulletin Boards
Conceptual Bulletin Boards
Decorative Bulletin Boards
Door Display
Interactive Bulletin Boards
Motivational Bulletin Boards
Photographic Displays
Current Affairs Bulletin Board
Classroom banners
Bullying Boards and others

Above can only be interpreted through artThey should be stimulating, colourful and trigger enthusiasm and curiosity in the pupils – they should be “WOW”
be age appropriate and ensure that the focus is children’s learning.School learning environments have largely untapped potential as active contributors to the learning process.

It is difficult if not impossible for us to separate learning environment from art.e) It also helps encourage memory retention. When students perform in the classroom. not only are they developing physically. but they are also increasing the chance that they will remember and learn more effectively.
f) integrations allow for multiple perspectives
g) integrations help create a safe atmosphere for taking risks
h) integrations demonstrate that learning can be a pleasurable experience
i) it helps for Understanding of physical and chemical properties of substances (science)
j) it helps in Applying of mathematical concepts such as line, shape, and space (mathematics)
k) it helps in Understanding of ways in which social and cultural values are defined and expressed throughout history (social studies).
and l) the arts and regular curriculum naturally complement each other.e) It also helps encourage memory retention. When students perform in the classroom. not only are they developing physically. but they are also increasing the chance that they will remember and learn more effectively.

Note, we are not preparing the children to be an artist with this approach but TO ENABLE THEM PASS THROUGH THE CREATIVE PROCESS.
For me ART is part of 21st Century Learning Skills and schools need to integrate this art to the curriculum to engage their students in creating new paths to learning while connecting concepts across subject matters.
By basing lessons around enduring ideas found in arts content, your school help students to make sense of the world around them in ways that apply to their learning of concepts.SO WHY IS THE ARTS CURRICULUM AN EFFECTIVE CURRICULUM?

a) integrations allow students to use their hands, bodies, and voices in meaningful ways
b) making art allows choices about how to interact with content
c) integrations are social events
d) it engage the bodily kinesthetic learners.When school faculties and administrative leadership work together through partnerships towards this vision of art integration that is what I call REAL LEARNING.
