Philosophy

At GolnartStudio:

  • We explore ourselves and the world around us through art creation.
  • Our everyday experience and knowledge is valued.
  • By making art we create meaning.
  • We have the opportunity to express our points of view and ideas as well as experience those of others, and be more tolerant of them.
  • Our creation process is a form of research, in which the instructor learns and grows alongside her students.
  • We improve our visual perception by practicing to see, interpret, discover relations, and make decisions.
  • We develop our skills in drawing, painting, print making, sculpture, collage, and mixed media.
  • We understand the expressive content of visual forms and learn to express ourselves in various meaningful ways.
  • We use our imagination as a source of ideas and problem-solving.
  • We practice our ability to make qualitative judgements about art and articulate our preferences.
  • The instructor enhances the creative spirit of children by posing questions and providing in-depth, meaningful information.
