Welcome to EduArt 4 Kids
I wish I could say, just hang out my site here and I will make sure that your child will turn into the next Picasso or Michelangelo .
But, I can’t.
I don’t even think I could promise that if I was an artist, which I’m not.
But, I teach art and I can teach you how to teach your child how to do art, even if you have no art background.
If you’re a parent you’re lucky because this way you get years to work with your children as opposed to teachers who get one year.
Art means lots of different things to different people.
To some it means art museums, to others it means awful childhood experiences with failure.
I know there are many, many sites about crafts and art out there (there is a difference between crafts and art which you’ll learn about when you get my guide) and some are great sites while others are ehh!!
I however, am on a mission. On a mission guide you on a journey of giving your children an art education, helping their confidence grow, raising their self esteem, make them better learners, and having fun all through art.
You see, I’ve learned that you don’t need an art background to teach kids art. You can be an “art enabler” which is what I was for a while. It was only recently that I morphed into an art teacher.
I’m still not at the level that I can teach complicated art skills and when your children get really good and want to learn more about 2 point and 3 point perspective, shading and more complicated techniques then its time for REAL art classes.(Or you can watch some of the hundreds of you tube videos there are with art lessons)
Meet the team: That’s me….
My name is Faigie Kobre . (hard g)
I’ve been married 30 years (same guy) have 6 children and a bunch of grandchildren. I live in NY (not far from Kennedy airport) and live in an Observant Jewish community. (more about that at Mama Smiles blog).
I have a Masters in Early Childhood Education from the Bank Street College of Education, spent years as an early childhood teacher and then director. I also spent 25 years as a high end portrait photographer. (Don’t try guessing how old I am)
Below is a collage of some of my past portrait work.
Now I’m an art teacher and an art blogger.
I had started this blog as an outgrowth of my early childhood teaching and directing experiences and realized that I needed to be doing more art in order to blog about it.
As a result I started art classes in my home, got a job as an art teacher in a new school and the latest development now is that I will be teaching a college level art class in a new program starting nearby in the Fall. (I am really excited about that). We also have an art camp in our house every Summer.
What I believe:
I believe that good art, art that is age appropriate and developmentally appropriate is not only fun, fulfilling and creative but, it also is a conduit to children developing good self esteems and become better learners.
I believe that I can help you give your children the best art experiences from process only art to a real art education without you having an artistic ability at all.
I think that everyone can be good in art, it just has to be nurtured and if you have your own bad art experiences than hang out a bit here so you can learn how not to give those over to your children.
Follow along: Really!!!
So come join me in the places I hang out to get more great art.
I’d love to connect with you so if you like, follow and subscribe that would be a great way to keep in touch.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey of learning all kinds of great art things that you can do with your own kids (or students) and hopefully they will develop the confidence in art and themselves so important to be a successful learner in school (or at home)today.
And it may inspire you on your own journey as well as when I grow up I also want to be an artist.
I would love to hear from you on this page or on any other page. You can reach me at this contact me page, or you can email me at email@example.com
I would especially love to hear of your own past experiences with art that you feel shaped how you relate to art today.
