Looking at their smiles from each portrait taken, you can feel their pride, joy, accomplishment and enthusiasm when they hold on this certificate.
Speaking from a perspective of a parent-teacher, Art is not just another school subject. Art creates events to show a child's natural ability with the process of making art and deciding what really is complete. Compare such an event with an adult taking on a job with the strong desire to fulfil ownership based on individual desires, principles and restrictions. Through the job, an adult takes on advice, learns new abilities and knowledge through colleagues and mentors, and eventually grow and overcome new challenges together with the company. The challenges we set in Artistori with our inquiry-based and emergent curriculum creates such events for every child.
A personal summary from the book "The Power of Habit" by Jack D. Hodge:
Ideas and thoughts determine behavior, behavior determines habit, habit determines character, and character determines destiny.
Jack D. Hodge 的《习惯的力量》一书中的个人总结：
As we impart new knowledge and skills Artistori artists, each individual receives it differently and we take this opportunity to share and communicate their differences together and holistically, new abilities, knowledge and topics are emerged. Children become more involved, knowing their artworks are unique and original to themselves, they own it and they want to improve their own work naturally, craving on "How can I improve?" and "What can be done?". This positive attitude is a character builder and becomes a good habit in a child's life on abilities such as problem-solving, creativity, self-learning, etc. This habit can eventually be reflected and applied onto their other academical subjects.
As Artistori little artists from Creative Mix Media Art programme upgrades to Creative Fine Art programme becoming junior artists, the curriculum becomes more engaging and creative with the opportunity for concept planning phases encompassing feelings, emotions, ideas, aspirations, etc.
As Artistori junior artists from Creative Fine Art programme upgrades to Creative Visual Art programme becoming young artists, the curriculum directs and guides them to the path of a developing artist with the opportunity for more intensive skill training that includes digital art, ceramics and pottery. With fine art as a base, their art works depicts their skills, styles and form. The inclusion of emotions, feelings and their own ideas creates value and meaning. Creative Visual Art programme produces young modern artists who have the skills, creativity and originality.
Congratulations my fellow Artistori artists!
