My project will be self-expression capes. The materials needed are: paint brushes, different sized shapes and colors of cloth, markers, glitter glue, paint, gel pens, fabric markers, and paint. I will let each child pick their own piece of cloth. They will have the options of different colors and lengths of cloth to make their capes. All materials will be put on the table for the children to choose which materials they would like to use. The children will be advised to decorate their capes any way they want with whatever materials they would like to use. There will be no time limit for the children. The children can decide for themselves when their capes are done. As each student finishes their capes; I will hang them up around the classroom to dry. This will give everyone a chance to see each other’s master pieces. When they are dry the children can play dress up with their art work. Children can give their selves a super hero name if they would like. They can choose to tell the classroom about their capes, why they chose to decorate it the way they did, and what their super hero name and powers are.
This project allows children to put their brain to work by having to decide what to create and the story behind their cape. It also allows children with decision making. Children will be able to see how creative they can be when they don’t have to follow directions. The end result is to help them grow creatively. Most children begin to rely on adult feedback or approvals. Children should take risks and make mistakes; which is part of creating knowledge and the creative process. Children are used to coloring books with premade pieces. These do not help with creativity. Do not ask children what they are drawing. Have the children tell you about their art in their own word ( ). My project can help non-verbal children express
