Children are full of curiosity to create art, they explore different medium and media to unlock their creativity, from charcoal on wall, to marks on sands, scribble on papers, chalk on floor or wall, the list is endless. Children understand better the word “play”, their play time could be creatively converted to art engagement.

INTRODUCTION

Children are full of curiosity to create art, they explore different medium and media to unlock their creativity, from charcoal on wall, to marks on sands, scribble on papers, chalk on floor or wall, the list is endless. Children understand better the word “play”, their play time could be creatively converted to art engagement. They could be given chance to create their own world in a variety of ways; but they need a guide. They need someone to show them how? Someone to encourage their creative endeavours, someone to help them to harness their God’s given talent. Consequent upon the above, the TEACHING VISUAL ART has created a creative platform, the CHILDREN ART CLUB with the aim to provide an outlet for enriching and creative art activities for the kids with aim of promoting art from the grassroots level. The CHILDREN ART CLUB comes up every 3rd Saturday of the month at the Cultural and Musical Heritage Centre, OLUMO ROCK, Ikija, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. Admission is made FREE for the participating children; there are free art resources/supplies to be used and no fees to be paid. It has been endorsed by InSEA (www.insea.org). The space is provided by Olumo Art Movement. You too can be part of it; volunteer, participate, sponsor or partner with the TEACHING VISUAL ART to bring continued Art resources for the advancement of Art practice, theory and appreciation in the nation of ours, Nigeria.
