Inspiring Creativity through Arts & Crafts

After School Children Art Classes Second Session


Are your art classes STEAM inspired?


Lately I been getting parents inquiring  more about my art curriculum; honestly I never set much thought about  asking myself if my art classes were STEAM inspired as to me is pretty obvious Art is connected to this 4 concepts and had been using this concepts on my art approach  without putting too much emphasis to call them certain "steam title".





 Steam stands for Science Technology Engineering Art and Math.

 After dissecting one of my lesson I will say Yes, definitely!


Art is very connected to all 4 STEAM concepts.




 Just a simple example is when we do portrait studies - a small  anatomy introduction  jumps in as an essential explanation to help the young artist understand what he / she is drawing from  dorso, elbow, muscles are there any veins shown on subject? neck, tendons, skull shape, eye sockets and grow formation. Young art students are expose to   a full introduction of  new words on anatomy and help them distinguish the basic composition in a human body when their art project is about such figurative drawing or so.


Our Skull study painting on canvas shown here:


Young art students  learned about the Sugar Skulls” folklore, traditions, where did started and why, to the more anatomical explanation such as  frontal bone, nasal bone, mandible bone and how mobile and large that jaw bone  is before they were ready to sketch their own sugar  skull.

We do little bit of chemistry by mixing colors when we study our color theory, clay and paint, paper mache and clue and other ingredients and so on …


We  also divide our pages in half, thirds and quarters, we section  and study angles and perspective. We also look for the native habitad of a particular animal we will be painting; origen and behavior.


Social Studies are touch when we talk about certain cities and social groups, traditions and ethnical customs before sketching, painting or 3D sculpting.


All this tiny bits of informations are pour into our  art classes in Menifee Kids Art Camp for our young millennials art students to learn and understand what lands behind their created subject.


 So, I might say yes, Menifee Kids Art Camp offers  a STEAM inspired art curriculum.
