TWRLogoForBLOGThe Walker Rezaian Creative Hearts Fund offers Kindergarteners from a title one school in Marin a wonderful opportunity to learn to use art to explore the ideas of friendship. This year we worked with every kindergartener at Bahia Vista School for 12 weeks!

We start with an easy assessment: SHOW us your family: Who are they? What do you like to do together? Where do you like to go? Students use colored pencils to draw as many details as possible. Teachers can see a student’s knowledge of:

  • Lines
  • Shapes
  • Numbers
  • Letters
  • Colors
  • Sharing
  • Reflecting
  • Encouraging peers
  • Asking good questions

 

Children work in small groups and practice sharing and respect: of each other and their materials.
