About this workshop

For parents and educators, the countless benefits of encouraging creativity in early childhood education are already well documented and irrefutable. But do children know why they need to do arts & crafts? What is it for?

Participants of this workshop series are introduced to various art activities as they try to learn the value of communicating their ideas, thoughts, and feelings.

Why join this workshop?

The benefits of art for kids are many and include problem-solving abilities, creativity, literacy, fine & gross motor skills, connection, and understanding.

In these difficult times, however, the benefits of engaging children in creative activities become all the more important. Art can help children process and express their thoughts and emotions – and because children are still discouraged from leaving the house – it provides them a venue where they can socialize with other kids.

What will children learn from this workshop?

Each session starts with a lively discussion on the art form featured for the day. Children are introduced to works of art masters and are asked to share their thoughts and reactions with the rest of the group.

The facilitator then guides the children through the process of making the session’s activity. The session ends with a period of reflection.

The learning goals for this workshop are:

  • The value of art as a tool for self-expression and prompts for reflection
  • Communicating ideas, thoughts, and feeling through art
  • Colors and the emotions they evoke

Before registering

The purpose of this workshop is to cultivate the participant’s curiosity and deepen his or her interest in art. The program focuses on helping participants find the joy in creativity and teaching them how to use the arts for self-expression, reflection, and communication.

The development of technical skills and mastery of formal art techniques are not the goals of this workshop. The program places value in the process, and not the final product.

She is passionate about sharing her love for art, and the important role art plays in the holistic development of the child.
