WHAT'S HAPPENING IN CURIOSITY LAB?
Why We Do Observational Drawing at Curiosity Lab?
Drawing based on observation is the reading and writing of the visual improvement of the brain. The visual improvement of the brain is the substructure of the imagination skill and being creative. Therefore, teaching how to observe and draw is the foundation of teaching the creativity.
Initially, you cannot draw what you do not sense. Drawings are experiences. The parts of the brain that make observation and drawing can be stimulated for to be improved. Learning the careful observation habit is an important key for every part of the life.
At Curiosity Lab, we are frequently perform art works on looking, seeing and drawing with children at every age.
Because, the observation habit and drawing can only be learned through regular practice like every other things.
Why the drawings of each child at Curiosity Lab are different from each other?
Every child is different, they have their own style and are creative. The drawings that are unique to each child and are different is an absolute must of the art education for the purpose of supporting this disparity and improving the creativity and individuality.
While we perform our works at Curiosity Lab, instead of showing the work samples defining the absolute result to the children, we progress over miscellaneous artists and works in different approaches. With this method, the children recognize that there are different and unique approaches, perspectives and works in the history of art and take inspiration from these.
They recognize that as the works of all artists are different from each other, the work of art of each child is also different from each other, that nobody looks like each other and so the things done and they also realize the power of originality.
In this matter, we support the children to develop their own approaches by means of appreciating their own uniques instead of comparing themselves with the others.
O'Keeffe and His Flowers
If you allow room to children in the art education, respect to them and keep your adult expectations in the background, then a garden formed of unique flowers appears in front of you.
Brueghel and Children’s Games
Like we see in the painting of Brueghel, the ones who will live 500 centuries after us will be able to learn which games are played in MEÇ (Curious Children) garden.
Why our dreams have no limit at Curiosity Lab?
For the young brains, imaginative drawing is a very effective practice. This is one of the best methods sharpening the intelligence. While learning how to draw, the imagination part of the brain improves too.
Dreaming means imagination. For our imaginations, the nature is our greatest source of inspiration that opens the doors to our creativity and that frees us. The imaginative drawing exercises initially provide an opportunity for getting over the memorized typical borders.
Through the works that we perform at Curiosity Lab, we allow room to children for frequently analyzing the nature, recognizing the world beyond the memorized and known borders, discovering their own broad imaginary world and revealing themselves in a brave manner.
Therefore the trees drawn by the children at Curiosity Lab may be colorful and in unusual forms.
