At Brain Builders, we believe that art is an essential part of a well-rounded education. That's why we offer a unique art curriculum that integrates the principles of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), neuroscience, and social emotional learning into our art instruction. Our art program is designed to develop our students' creativity, problem-solving skills, brain development, social emotional skills, and visual literacy.
We believe that art is not just about creating something beautiful, but also about developing the ability to think critically and solve problems. In our art classes, our students explore a variety of art forms, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and mixed media. They learn about the elements and principles of design, such as color, line, shape, texture, and composition. They also learn about the history and cultural context of different art forms, as well as the role of art in our world.
Students also engage in engineering challenges that require them to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to design and build structures and objects.
Through our STEAM art curriculum, our students develop important skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. They also develop an appreciation for the arts and the role of art in our world.
One unique aspect of our art curriculum is the integration of piano lessons into our program. Research has shown that learning a two-handed instrument, such as the piano, before the age of 8 can increase the size of the corpus callosum, which connects the left and right sides of the brain. This can lead to improved memory, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills.
Our piano lessons are designed to be accessible and engaging for our young students, using techniques such as color-coded notes and fun games to make learning the piano enjoyable and rewarding. By integrating piano lessons into our art curriculum, we provide our students with a unique opportunity to develop their musical abilities and enhance their cognitive development.
At our school, we are committed to providing a well-rounded education that prepares our students for success in the 21st century. Our STEAM art curriculum is just one of the many ways we achieve this goal, and we are proud to offer a unique and innovative approach to art education.
