Art discovery Adventures Art Discovery

WELCOME ADVENTURERS!

WAYS TO HAVE FUN
& learn about art!!!!

A Note for For Mom and Dad,

ART DISCOVERY ADVENTURES are a new idea in working with your children to encourage their interest in and knowledge of the fine arts and fine crafts that you have seen with them at our art shows, “the Art Fairs at Queeny Park”.
As good parents, you understand the great importance of art education in your child’s over-all schooling…and sadly, today, funding for art education is being cut or even eliminated in many schools.  This makes it even more important to not just expose your children to fine art, but to share that experience with them.  Our goal in introducing this program is to give children an understanding of the art they are seeing; to let them fully realize that all the art they see at art shows they attend is made by the hands of the artists they meet. ( Artists are real people,too.) We hope this will encourage a greater interest in not just “Looking” at art, but being inspired with the urge to create something that is truly their own.
For the artistic traditions we are so proud of to continue, we must have a new generation of artists learning from the present generation and taking what they learn to even greater heights.
