March is Youth Art Month

From our Social Media Coordinator, Lori...

My eight year old son recently came home from school and rattled off a long list of facts about Andy Warhol. 

Surprised, I asked, "How do you know who Andy Warhol is?!"

"We are learning about him in art class!," he said excitedly.

We then preceded to talk about soup cans, how screen printing works and how that relates to what he is working on in art class. We decided to take a family trip to the Andy Warhol Museum the following weekend. There, we talked about what art is, what art can be, and how art makes us feel. My kids even pulled their own screen prints in the museum "Factory." 

This was all because my son's art teacher engaged my son and his classmates in her classroom.

Dynasty Brush is a strong supporter of art education and is a member of the National Art Education Association, the New York State Art Teachers Association, the Art Educators of New Jersey, and the Texas Art Education Association.

According the the National Art Education Association Youth Art Month website, "The program provides a medium for recognizing skills developed through visual arts experiences unlike any other curriculum subjects, including: Problem solving, Creativity, Observation, Communication."
