The Springfield Regional Art Council has extended their educational means by putting together kits to educate students across the area on famous artists and their different styles. Each Art Kit consists of educational material for students to learn about a particular artist. Information about the artist and a sample of his or her work is included in each kit; some kits also include a book about the artist. Each kit comes with a set of instructions on how to create a piece of artwork similar to the artist’s style. The kits are separated into two different age groups – Pre-K through 2nd grade, and 3rd through 5th grades. All the kits are listed below, including the artist’s name and the art project the students can make. Each kit does include all the information needed to educate students about the artist; however, they do not include the consumable materials to make the projects.
If you are interested in checking out one of the Art Kits, please contact Rachel Johnson at 417-862-2787 or Rachel@SpringfieldArts.org.
