Creative World Art School is a non-profit organization in Arcadia, CA focusing on arts education. We offer weekend fine arts classes, an after-school program, summer art camps, birthday art workshops, and more.

ART & ANTHROPOLOGY

Creative World's Art & Anthropology class introduces diverse cultures, histories, and aesthetics to students through art projects. Our program is designed to engage students and expand on school curriculum by exploring distant lands and times!

ART & ANTHROPOLOGY

NDEBELE HOUSE PAINTINGS

Ms. Briana's Art & Anthropology class created these vibrant designs and made miniature homes out of them.

Students first learned about the aesthetics of the Ndebele culture and their unique house painting traditions. More information about the history of these dwellings can be found online here. Each student created their own unique miniature dwelling. Similar to building missions in school students built homes except our students focused on a country outside of America. 

We believe that introducing students to the aesthetics of different cultures will help them learn to be fascinated with all the world has to offer!


CHINESE CALLIGRAPHY

To celebrate Chinese New Year Mr. Zac's introduced his Art & Anthropology class to the history of Chinese Script!  The Chinese written language is over 3,500 years old (although it has changed dramatically). For Mr. Zac's students that approached the Chinese Written Language for the first time they were able to contrast the characters with the English Alphabet; not only is there an aesthetic difference but they are functionally very unique from each other as well.  Each student either learned a character or created one of their own! 

We believe that projects such as this one will help broaden the world for our students while building a diverse understanding of other people.


PAINTING PAGODAS

Ms. Briana's class learned about the aesthetic and historical purposes. These elaborate structures vary from different ages and different cultures. They serve as religious structures primarily in China and East Asia. 

Above are the watercolors our students made of their very own pagodas!


NEBRA SKY DISK

Ms. Briana's class explored Soxaony-Anhalt Germany's take on astronomy this October! She's showing her students so many different world views of the sky throughout humanity's history check out the awesome artwork that is the result of learning from the past!


NAZCA LINES

Ms. Briana's Anthropology & Art focused on the Ancient Nazca culture of the Andes. She showed the class images of Nazca Lines - a collection of geoglyphs made by altering the surface layer of the ground. 

The Nazca Lines tie into our theme of Space, the Final Frontier, because their entire scope was designed to be seen from aerial views. Ms. Briana then prompted the class to create their own version. Students were challenged to design on the wall rather than the traditional table space in front of them. This allows them the ability to step back more easily and see their work from a viewer's perspective. They used sand, glue, and butcher paper and had a lot of fun working together!


MYTHS IN THE SKY

Ms. Rosaline introduces Ancient Greek Culture through myths and story telling. She explains the ways in which Ancient Greece saw patterns in the night sky and how they created cosmological stories to explain what they saw. 

Students were prompted to inhabit a similar world view and create stories and patterns in their own imagined night skies while paying homage to the past.
