conference paper description
Education of the fine arts has led to improvements in school by furthering problem solving development while also opening new avenues for creative investigation and expression. The goal of our project has been to increase the accessibility of fine art for children of all ages so as to establish an appreciation of fine art early in life. The methodology of this project involved analyzing and reevaluating existing educational programs in fine art museums so as to improve the effectiveness of these programs. Currently, museums have differing degrees of educational involvement, if at all. I have proposed several activities that will allow children of varying educational backgrounds a greater means of experiencing art, art history, and creative expression through creative practices.
