At Kids Cottage Nursery, in our reggio environment we considered art media as a tool to help our children make their ideas, thoughts, theories visible and to construct a new understanding of any project and theme.

Through encounters with a wide range of media and materials, children become more comfortable and skilled and begin to use the materials to communicate and represent their emotions, discoveries and interests.

The schools in Reggio Emilia refers to this communication as “The hundred languages of children”.

Instinct & Imagination

An exploration of lines and colors inspired by Joan Miro.When Fs1 Class stood in front of the canvas, they never know that they are going to do – but at the end they were surprised from their results.

“I think I can see lots of lines, a sleeping line, a standing line, a hip hop line, a wave line, a jumping line and a zigzag line. I want to draw like Miro, he likes lines, and black colors. I draw a big circle it is someone with earphone listening to the radio. The circle is a line going round and round” Atlas, 4yrs.

This is how our little artist Atlas deciphered the concept of lines through Joan Miro paintings.

Jackson Pollock- A beautiful Mess

Inspired by the famous artists, Jackson Pollock, Bluebells Class, age 2-3 years, created a stunning collaborative piece of art following the technique called action painting used by Pollock. These small artists enjoyed dribbling the paint in long and wobbly lines, and making splashy drippy, messy while listening to music.

Happy Listening and Art-Making!
