Teaching the Creative Process

Can you picture your students learning plein air painting outside on a warm fall day? How about exploring a English Norman style manor while using song to learn about historical events? A Greenacres arts field trip helps teachers bring these ideas to life.  Students will explore the creative process of art with hands-on experiences. The programming varies, from engaging a student in music and visual arts, to drama and dance, all while helping reinforce other subjects being taught in the classroom. A visit to the Greenacres Arts Center helps instill a sense of wonder and encourages the imagination to dream big.

Scales in the Arts

Scales help us see images clearly and listen to music more attentively and take on new meaning in math and science. Students will learn how to use different types of scales as they work to re-create the artistic style of Cincinnati artist, Charley Harper, and will learn musical scales as they sing songs from popular musicals.

Nature and The Starry Night

Whether it’s learning to create light in your art or studying the weather, Van Gogh’s The Starry Night can provide inspiration. Students will get to be creative and visualize wind, the night-sky, trees, and the moon while putting their own spin on Van Gogh’s masterpiece.
