My name is Michael Goins, and I am the lead creator of OwlHill.org. owl Hill is an in-depth, diverse website where children can freely access a broad spectrum of artistic and musical educational activities. Not only do we provide lessons in the fundamentals of art and music, we also go deeper and teach the science and history behind these things as well. We want to inspire kids to cultivate an emotional connection to the arts by being able to use every one of their senses to absorb the beauty and wonder of creative, imaginative learning.
Through puppetry, video lessons, interactive games, artist interviews, exposure to a wide variety of music and crafts, and more, we hope that kids will be encouraged to tap into their unique creative juices and learn something at the same time.
How does Owl Hill teach art and music? One important way in which we teach art is by visiting professional artists with our puppets so that they can show children what they do and how they do it in real life. Then, we create projects a child can do at home that are based around that artist and what he or she has shown during the visit. In the same way, music has the undeniable ability to move children – emotionally, mentally, and physically. We will approach music education in much the same way as with art: by connecting with musicians that are passionate about their craft and that want to help children learn to love music as well. We will also demonstrate the important connection between music and visual art by creating projects that blend the two together. Children, learning, and the arts are our passion, and we believe that children everywhere should have access to education and information to help them grow creatively. This is why we are excited about Owl Hill, and we hope that you will be excited too.
