Art integrated across the curriculum connects beautifully
with a brain compatible classroom. This year at camp we will be learning about many artists in collaboration with our library media center. We invite you to learn along with us. Art is the great equalizer. There is no right or wrong answer; it speaks to a child’s emotions, which have been described
as the gateway to brain compatible learning, and it sparks the creative spirit in all curricular areas. This month we will explore the self-portrait master, Rembrandt Harmensz
Van Rijn. After watching “Rembrandt’s Beret,” the children were given their own yellow felt berets, their “painter’s crowns.” We also prepared for state testing using Norman
Rockwell’s “Choosin Up” painting.
