Artist’s Statement (Final Draft)


The future generations are comprised of the children of today; hence they become the greatest determinants of how the future will look like. Parents play a great role in the development of their children, including molding their future. Even though, teachers play a greater role in the lives of the children more than parents. The main reason for the situation is because children spend most of their time growing up in schools more than at home. In most cases, the teachers who create immense impact in the lives of the children are those that encouraged them and showed them the correct way to handle life situations. On the other hand, teachers who kept on discouraging them and mocking their weaknesses also impact their lives, but in this case, it is a negative impact. The education system measures success by the grades the children acquire, and the teacher’s performance, on the other hand, has its measure as the content in which the children have in their minds at the end of different sessions. Performance in both the level of the teacher and the student has its measurement technique as the tests in which the students participate at the end of a specific period. Curiosity is also essential in the lives of children in different ways. There is a great connection between curiosity and exploration. If it were not for curiosity, many of the modern-day innovations could not exist. Normally children learn faster than adults. It insinuates that if children have ample time to satisfy their curiosity, they will have better life results than adults. When children learn various things from the satisfaction of their curiosity, they would often remember the concept for a long time. In most cases, people do not satisfy their curiosity as older adults often shut them up and assume that the children’s curiosity will bring negative repercussions. Children should have the opportunity to satisfy their curiosity at different levels to get answers to different useful things.

Artist’s Statement

I have read different articles that discuss how children use various techniques to ensure that they acquire the knowledge they need with ease. The most striking article I came across discussed how a particular kindergarten school was engaging children in arts, games, and crafts before interacting with the real curriculum of normal subjects like Science and Mathematics. According to the article, the program’s main aim is to ensure that the children explore themselves to find what excites them more than the rest. Looking back at my life, I wished to have gone through a similar curriculum, and I would not have some regrets that I have in my life. I feel like the curriculum would minimize the time that I wasted fumbling with various facts trying to get ideas on what path I want to pursue in life. Growing up, I had so much curiosity, and I feel as if I did not satisfy it enough. In this case, I wanted to interact with the other form of reality on how life would turn out when my curiosity would get the satisfaction it needed.

The main audience of the project is the different school teachers who happen to be the main stakeholders in the encouraging or shuttering of the curiosity of the different students. The main avenue will be through school magazines, where most teachers get their information on what is happening in the school curriculum. Teachers are also people who enjoy reading, and an article would work well as reflective reading is what most teachers value. It is the hobby of many teachers to read and critique various texts as most of them encourage their students to read, and they want to set a good example for them to follow. Pathos will be an appropriate platform for passing the information as teachers are mostly emotional, especially about their work. Logos will also be instrumental in giving the evidence of the proposal and how effective the article is in the educational curriculum. Ethos will also be effective to show the credibility of the points that I will put across in the article.

Numerous articles and newspapers have tackled the situation differently and will be instrumental in my project. I plan to search for all the articles that discuss the faultiness of the current curriculum and those that give appropriate solutions concerning fulfilling the children’s curiosity. Most articles agree with allowing children to explore their life options by fulfilling their curiosity. There is also an emphasis on strict supervision of the children when they are engaging in activities of curiosity exploration. Initially, I thought that short stories would be instrumental in my project, but I realized that I would not cover as much content as possible. I also realized that my target audience is teachers who do not cherish short stories like children. The implementation of the project makes me proud, and I am happy that I am impacting society in different ways.
