Who created ArTree?
I am an art director with background in child education and psychology. I love art and ever since my kids were born, I was trying to teach them how to appreciate it and, of course, how to create it. I created hundreds of projects and lesson plans and decided that this may be a good way to share it everybody who would find them interesting.
How does it work?
There are no good or bad ways to do art, in my book. I believe that art is a form of expression of ourselves, not just mere copying of others. I do not strive to teach kids to paint the same way Picasso did… I merely use the artists and projects to spark their curiosity and creativity. I introduce the artists to talk about concepts, techniques and then show numerous variations to strengthen it. I want kids to be confident in their skills and have fun in the process.
