En este video, mi amigo, Maestro Jesús Oviedo, mostró proyectos artísticos que familias pueden hacer en casa con agua, pintura y jabón. In this video, my friend, teacher Jesús Oviedo, demonstrates art projects that families can do at home with water, paint and soap.
Maestro Jesús, an artist and early childhood educator, shared some thoughts on how art inspires deep reflection and creativity in this reflection:
Where do ideas come from? In 20-plus years of teaching and making art, I see the basic connection between thinking and doing, and how one strengthens the other. We all have things we do with our hands to help us think, whether it’s cooking, tinkering with objects or even organizing a closet.
The drive to play, explore or tinker with materials can be called intuition. As we use our hands, there’s never just a single thought, but a subconscious flow of wordless thoughts. Play is a place where more complex ideas and inventions grow. Maybe the process of exploration leads you to create a work of art. Maybe it helps you discover a way to solve a problem. It can also be a calming, aesthetic experience.
The Possibilities of Water video is meant to be very open-ended, and applicable to creative thinking, problem solving and collaboration between children and adults. Above all is meant to be fun. So check it out, try it and add your own twists to it.
