Dear You Art Project

Mail Art + Pen Friends = Dear You Art Project

Sensing through making art!

2017, 6 years old, Dear You Art Workshops, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, DubaiArlene TuckerComment

I started this project by explaining we were gonna have new art buddies in Dubai and I showed them how far away it is and some pictures of the city and school. 

They got really excited and the project matched our curriculum perfectly since we are learning about senses and habitats. 

I got them to experience different sounds so they could imagine how their creations would look like.

It was funny to hear them say 'I've got it! Mine will be a beach, cause that sound like a wave' and 'That sound gave the idea to make a fairy land, cause that sounds like magic'. 

I enjoyed watching them pay attention to what they were hearing, imagine and create unique pieces of art for our special friends in Dubai.
