Star Kids Job Fair about Art
Last year, I had the opportunity to explain the profession of an artist to third-world children through a non-profit organization called "Star Kids". Star Kids provides free online education mainly for children in the third world who have difficulties in after-school education.
Teachers, mostly volunteers, provide training in about 30-45 minutes.
During this class, I was in charge of the art side of the job fair program, preparing materials and making presentations.
In my initial presentation, I tried to let the children know the essential aspect of my work through the development of an artist from the time of my debut, centering on my career.
However, I think this content was too difficult for children. So this time I'm trying to change the content.
In other words, I'm trying to change the contents with the purpose of providing various motives based on what children are interested in.
First, I would like to ask the children about the concept of a painter as we generally know it. Because then children will easily become interested in art or artists. In addition to that concept, I plan to describe the job of an artist by describing important concepts that we did not know about before.
I will post the comparison again after the announcement on January 7th to see which one is much more concentrated.
