What we do:-
Encourage children to develop their own unique personalities through expressive art.
Why painting with music is a good process art activity.
The children are given an easel which helps control their movements on paper/canvas. The area is already prepped so that paint can be dropped or get messy without any interruption.
The music is gentle, uplifting and age appropriate. The music helps guide children to emote and express freely. The music has different tempos and moods. Some light pieces and some more dramatic. This encourages children to paint what they hear and what they feel without any inhibitions or concerns of painting something specific.
Why these classes are important
Painting to music allows children to interpret and process sensory information. It also allows them to take ownership of the music by creating their individual impressions.
Through this children begin to understand that things we hear or experience can shape how we feel and what we do. Thoughts that may have been intangible are now on paper expressed without encountering communication boundaries.
Bloom workshops are guided by the idea that children can create freely gaining confidence, celebrating their own unedited ability to produce vibrant art in a fun and energetic environment.
Joe Whale, now known globally as the doodle boy, was first discovered at Studio 39. His talent was quickly picked up by Kerry and his work was shared on the Bloom instagram page. One of his first original pieces was created on the wall at the studio and still receives much attention. Kerry nicknamed Joe ‘doodle boy’ during his class Big Bloomers. Joe’s art career took off soon after, with news of his talents spreading around the world and an appearance on the Ellen show and CNN news in America and he's just about to sign a new book deal.
