Mrs. Marty from Chatsworth CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a painting easel to express emotion, explore process and outcomes and stimulate their senses. As a child paints, both sides of the brain are engaged, strengthening the connection between the two hemispheres.
My students are between the ages of 4 and 5 years of age. They are just starting their school experience and they all have a great love of learning.
This age group requires small group instruction, creative play, visuals, and manipulatives.
Many of these students come to school without the basic foundational skills needed to succeed. Not only academically but social and emotional as well.
Every student learns through different modalities and it is important to provide a rich environment that is a component of the curriculum.
Painting is very important for preschool children because it fosters creativity and has developmental benefits. Creative activities, like painting help children use both sides of the brain. The right side of the brain is used for emotional and creative responses, while the left side of the brain focuses on analytical processes and logic. Learning to paint benefits children by using both sides of their brain.
Children who paint learn to think with an open mind, to look at situations creatively.
They learn to express themselves more deeply through their art and their words.
Painting can also be a stress relief for children. It can be calming by losing themselves in the brush strokes. The act of creating provides a soothing place for them to turn to, and the feeling of accomplishment from completing a project can help replace negative feelings about other things. It can act as a type of therapy, helping bring out their feelings through painting.
