Abstract

This creative research was aimed at 1. studying children’s processes of learning by incorporating artistic principles, 2. developing creative works under the conceptual framework of art creation, and 3. analyzing and evaluating the approach to encourage children’s learning process. For the research methodology, there are 4 stages of research as follows: 1. studying children’s preferences and creating learning activities, 2. designing creative art, conceptualizing historical content, developing structural techniques and creating artwork, 3. displaying an exhibition to present the artwork to peer groups and general audiences, and 4. concluding the findings and writing a complete report. The findings of the creative research could be divided into two parts. First, the artistic principles are successful in encouraging children’s process of learning. The mind mapping and the process of creating creative activities include 1) letting the kids do what they like, 2) having children enjoy outdoor activities, 3) strengthening children’s knowledge while they are doing some activities. Second, creative works were produced, using the selected conceptual framework of art-creation. The works are, for example, A2-sized mixed media works, showing the content of ancient artifacts, antique paintings, antique-shaped oil sculptures, and stickers. Regarding its result, this project was considered successful as the artwork from the project was well-received by peer groups. In addition, after having been monitored, the participants of the research project constantly showed their passion for art or create artwork, learned history, and developed artwork as outcomes of their passions.
