Process Art is art that is self-directed, choice-driven, and celebrates the experience of discovery. In process art, the final product is always unique, and the focus lies in the creation of the work, not the outcome.
So much of our lives are focused on coloring within the lines and working towards a specific end. The “no touching” atmosphere that surrounds art can make art seem distant and cold.
Process art helps to combat both these issues, it encourages creative, independent thought and helps to dissipate the feeling of “I can’t do that” when it comes to art.
Process art is incredibly soothing and a GREAT source of learning self-regulation.
While this approach to the art process seems so simple, we are learning a lot! Everything from what materials are available, the limitations and use of those materials, as well as cause and effect... our minds are at work during this time.
Molly Nelko will be there to answer any questions and guide you as needed.
This class will be held on the first and second Saturday of the month from 1-2pm.
Session C: August 12
