ART&CRAFT WORKSHOPS:

POSITIVITY THROUGH ART

Creative Arts sessions for kids designed to stimulate

self-exploration and self-expressionencouraging

imagination, critical thinking, and positive mindset.

Beyond Art: not only will these workshops help your kids

approach and experience art with enthusiasm and curiosity,

but they will also involve personal, social, and emotional skills, promoting respect and stimulating self-confidence.

By looking at works of art, making art, and getting engaged

with all their senses in art-centered activities, the students will find a safe space for being inspired, and inspire,

through a slow, self-paced, play-based learning process.

 

The classes may include: Collages, Modeling Clay, Painting, Crafts, Drawing, Hands-on Activities, Art Games, Natural Elements, Recycled Materials, mixing pieces of Music, Literature and Storytelling, Performing Arts, and much more! 

No specific skill is required!

Your kids will be guided step-by-step through the process, and will be fully immersed into a colorful atmosphere of Joy

The methodology by which these lessons are developed

incorporates parts of various strategies

(Montessori, VTS, SEL, among others),

alongside pieces from my own journey as an artist, educator, museum docent, and theatrical set/prop/costume designer.
