Teachers, get your class involved - make an art car!
There are lots of reasons why your class would consider making an art car.
- They participate in community events (parades) and traditions, and thereby become part of that community. By participating in these community events they also develop a greater sense of pride in themselves, their schools and their immediate community.
- Their concept of the world expands beyond the bounds of their immediate community.
- They learn to concentrate and pay attention to details.
- They learn to have pride in their accomplishments as a group and as individuals.
- They learn to set long term goals and then achieve the satisfaction of reaching those goals.
- They master problem solving skills and develop discipline.
- They discover the value of teamwork.
- They develop a greater understanding of conflict resolution and compromise.
- They learn to appreciate the freedom of expression a project of this nature provides.
- And most importantly, they gain a greater sense of self.
As an educator, you know that when a child develops these skills, they can rule the world, have fewer discipline problems, take pride in themselves and their work and become better students.
