Invitation to Create Yue Minjun Art Exhibition

One of our other artist of the month is Yue Minjun who is a contemporary Chinese artist. He is best known for oil paintings depicting himself in various settings, frozen in laughter. He has also reproduced this signature image in sculpture, watercolour and prints.

After looking at images of his artwork and exhibitions we invited the children to create their own Yue Minjun Exhibition with wooden peg dolls and loose parts.

Most of us know that art is important for children. But beyond why it is important for them to create art it is just vital to expose children to famous artists. Art connects us all. It can take us through history, introduce us to other cultures, the world around us, and to ourselves.

Therefore the more a child is exposed to the arts, the more techniques they are aware of, the more they can problem solve to think critically, the more they can creatively express themselves, the more accepting they are, and the more beauty they can see in the world around them. Art is one of the fundamental components of what makes us ALL uniquely human.
