As an arts educator I recognize the importance of emphasizing process over product. Because of this, as an art maker, it can be difficult to focus on the product - especially when I get to see my students enjoying the process so much.
This audio is from a class in which we talked about the Caves of Lascaux. Once they realized that pounding the chalk on their paper produced flying flecks everyone began to giggle uncontrollably. It was a moment of pure joy.
During Family Day at the SFMOMA I learned about Oskar Fischingar. In keeping with the Family Sundays current theme of Back to Basics, the museum made available various hands-on activities to help young museum-goers better understand the building blocks of art. Additionally, there were screenings of shorts by Fischingar. His use of color, line, and texture serve as a wonderful visual communication of the accompanying sounds in his videos. I only wish I had known about this guy a few months ago.
