The Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple's Art Classes are designed to widen each child's creativity while allowing for a free expression of his/her artistic talent. Children are exposed to diverse forms of art and encouraged to learn and develop new techniques. With art as the basis, each child will enhance his/her cognitive abilities and motor skills. Studies have shown that children engaged in the arts improve in their learning abilities across the academic spectrum from math and science to social studies and writing.

In the Temple's art classes, children will utilize interesting and diverse materials such as colorful beads, finger paints, watercolors, clay, oil pastels, charcoal, and chalk while they learn about drawing, painting, sculpting, collages, mosaics, and so much more!

The most unique aspect of the Temple's art classes is the format. Class for all the age groups starts with circle time and Hindu prayer. Then the lead teacher shares a moral story based in Hindu values and engages the students in a discussion of how the moral from the story relates to each of them. Following the story, the art based portion of the lesson begins. The lead teacher explains the form of art and engages the children in a learning discussion on the art form.

Art Classes

There are several class based goals defined by a age-range as detailed below:

Thrilling Three & Fabulous Four class (3 & 4): Children will learn about primary and secondary colors, mixing colors, start using colored pencils, continue to color with crayons while focusing on staying within the lines/boundaries, experiment with bringing a variety of shapes together to create a unique art piece, be exposed to watercolors, and learn how to make basic shapes with clay. Children will work more independently on skills such as cutting with scissors, drawing, and painting while nurturing a growing interest in arts and crafts.



Excited Early Elementary class (5-7): Children will be introduced to proper drawing techniques and have a series of basic to complex drawing projects, learn how to use watercolors and blend the paints to create breathtaking pieces like a sunset. They will learn about various aspects of art such as creating pattern, design, and mosaics. They will improve on their clay molding skills to create sculptures.. perhaps of Lord Ganesha. They will be exposed to more art tools in an artists arsenal such as oil pastels, watercolors, colored pencils, and beads. This class is designed to provide a foundation of art by introducing students to basic artistic concepts.

Daring Dalis (8-10) class: In this class, each student will learn about different FORMS OF ART (drawing, painting, sculpture, collage). They will get exposure into the basic elements and principles of design in various intricate types of art such as a Landscape, Abstract, Multicultural Art. Students work on fewer number of projects over multiple sessions and learn the importance of detail in each artistic piece. The students will experiment with techniques focusing on style, process, practice, function and concepts in the type of Art that they will be working on.
