4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The Expressive Arts Group offers creative processes for children age 6+. The activities are FUN, RELAXING and involve the use of IMAGINATION. The value of imagination is immense. There are numerous studies, which show statistically that children who are able to be imaginative have higher IQs and are able to cope better, and that encouraging the children to be imaginative improves their ability to cope and learn.
During one hour of the session children will go through different experiences:
- Short meditation
- Journey into fantasy world
- Creative work, including one of the themes below:
- Drawing (using pencils, crayons, ink)
- Lino carving
- Ending of the session with short feedback and meditation.
The Expressive Arts Group encourages spontaneous honest self-expression, which facilitates natural emotional release, supporting children to have some control over their emotions and not be overwhelmed by them. The aim of expressive art group is to provide safe, caring and accepting space for children to experiment with spontaneous arts.
