Al Hurwitz will speak to members and guests of Vineyard Village at Home on the art of children’s drawing on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Chilmark Library.
Dr. Hurwitz is the author of Children and Their Art and has taught children from preschool to the Harvard graduate school of education. He is a recent recipient of the National Art Education’s Lifetime Achievement Award as well as a former Art Educator of the Year and is the former world president of INSEA, UNESCO’s International Society for Education Through Art.
On Thursday, Dr. Hurwitz will take the audience on a journey through their past as he moves through the major stages of visual development, such as schematic, symbolic and scribble. Art supplies will be available for those who wish to actively participate. There will be demonstrations and examples of children’s drawings from the United States and abroad to clarify major points of discussion.
All are welcome and admission is free.
