WHAT IS PROCESS ART?
What do you think of when you think of children’s art activities?
Marshmallow snowmen? Fingerprint flowers? Pasta ornaments? While there isn’t anything wrong with these kids crafts or craftivities, they all have one thing in common. The focus is on the end result!
Usually, an adult has created a plan for a project that has one goal in mind, and it does not leave a lot of room for true creativity. For children, the real fun (and learning) is in the process, not the product.
- Kids want to make a mess.
- They want their senses to come alive.
- They want to feel and smell and sometimes even taste the process.
- They want to be free to let their minds wander through the creative process.
How can we help them reach this state of ‘flow’ – (the mental state of being completely present and fully immersed in a task)?
The answer is process art!
