This class is instructed to start up children on their first few motor skills in terms of creating shapes, working on student's hand grips, and increasing their attention span. Each project is formulated on a popular book, eg. "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle. Students will draw, color, hear the story from the teachers and finally complete their class with a craft that is inspired by the book of the day. Students will learn the 5 elements of shape and how to use them in recognization of the alphabet, the numbering system, and simplistic drawing of creatures from nature.

Teacher Description

The Monart school of art has been serving Houston for over 8 years. We pride ourselves in teaching free hand drawing with a progressive and unique step-by-step drawing curriculum. Monart teachers have been trained in the "Monart" methodology, which was founded by Ms. Mona Brooks, the author of teaching children how to draw; our core strength is that children learn how to break down any image into simple elements and draw them independently. Along with excellent art skills, they have a passion to teach. They are patient and work well with all students to help them overcome their difficulties.

American Robotics Academy's mission is to excite, inspire, and motivate young people about the fun, importance and impact of robotics technology in today's world. We hope to stimulate their imagination and creativity by encouraging them to explore, experience, and express themselves through our hands-on interactive robotics program. Our classes teach students to understand "how things work" through hands-on activities that demonstrate the principles of simple and motorized machines. They gain experience with design and problem solving through the use of gears, motors, wheels and axles, pulleys and remote control devices. Working in age appropriate teams of three, students learn a variety of ways to design a robot to do the things they want it to do. They decide and build, as a team, the best design of their robot for the competition to be held at the end of each class session.
