Craft Kids by Gemma
Craft kids is an art focused course created to explore a large variety of manual art activities. This promotes children's development in how to interact with the world around them, learning to make decisions, enabling them to dream up their own ideas, developing fine motor skills and free creative expression. This fosters their uniqueness, and creativity while also building confidence.
The art projects are based on the children's interests and new concepts and are often given weight by the use of storytelling, references and music. This offers a rich and global experience they can take with them into adulthood. Group and independent projects are a natural part of the art making processes we will cover during the term.
