Art & Humanities-Beginning
“Art and Humanities” is the core course of CM Cubed Art. Our educational purposes, goals and methods focuses on aesthetic education, gradually improving students’ humanistic knowledge, cultivating aesthetic taste, expanding imaginative and critical thinking skills. To work with public school’s schedule, our teaching curriculum is designed around the local school year schedule, too. This class touches subjects that range from the past, Eastern and Western art, folk art, Pop, to contemporary art.
Students from 5 to 10+ years old will enter different level classes according to their age and foundation. After 5 years of training, the students’ humanistic literacy, aesthetic taste, thinking and expression skill will far exceed those without training of the same age. Arts and humanities will lay a solid general foundation that will benefit for further study if the student chooses to do so.
