We created Faret Tachikawa art cards.

TOPICS 2023.05.30

In collaboration with the Arts and Crafts Department of the Tachikawa City Elementary School Education Research Association, we have created the “Faret Tachikawa Art Card” as a tool to help children become familiar with Faret Tachikawa Art and have fun learning about it. This is a renewed version of a card game that was devised, produced, and used by art club teachers as a pre-learning material for the “Faret Tachikawa Art Appreciation Class” held in the art and craft classes for fifth-grade students at Tachikawa City Elementary School. is. In addition to being used in 5th grade arts and crafts classes as usual, the project will be used at facilities outside of schools in order to familiarize children of a wider range of ages with Faret Tachikawa Art, which is a cultural property of Tachikawa City. We plan to use it in a variety of ways, including installing it, renting it out, and exhibiting it as a hands-on booth at events using in School.

■ Production history

Around 2000, when Faret Tachikawa Art Appreciation Class began at elementary schools, teachers of arts and crafts created cards as learning materials for the appreciation. It has been used for preparatory learning for 5th graders’ appreciation classes. However, since the cards were hand-made by teachers, there were only enough cards for one class, and each school took turns using them. The new Faret Tachikawa Art Cards were created in response to requests from the teachers who wanted to increase children’s opportunities to come into contact with Faret Tachikawa Art. 500 sets of the new Faret Tachikawa Art Cards were created and will be permanently used in each school, as well as widely distributed throughout the city. We will continue to expand the use of this cards.

■ Teachers’ thoughts

Mr. Tamaoki Orikasa, teacher at TachikawaDaikyu Elementary School: As the one who was involved in the idea from its inception, I would be very happy if the cards became widely used. I have realized that the depth of children’s interest in Faret Tachikawa Art is proportional to the amount of time they spend picking up and looking at the photos and cards.
Ms.Kaoru Sobajima, Teacher, at Tachikawa Dainana Elementary School: Through our annual appreciation classes and card learning, I strongly feel that Faret Tachikawa Art is becoming more established year by year. I think it would be great if more people from junior high schools and schools in other cities visited Faret Tachiakwa Art.

■ Utilization

・Permanently used in all 19 Tachikawa City elementary schools
・Installed in 8 Tachikawa City Children’s Centers and 36 locations for after-school children
・Holded as renfinor materials at Tachikawa City Libraries (Central Library, Kamisuna Library)

In addition, we plan to set up experience booths at events such as “Faret Tachikawa Art Museum Day.”
