We explore various Art museums during the camp through games, crafts and treasure hunts. Trying to make the kids question Art, try new Art techniques and pay attention to the creative processes behind each artwork.
OUTDOOR ART ADVENTURES
We love being outdoors! Children spend quite a long time indoors during school hours, so as long as the weather is nice we try to spend as much time as we can exploring the outdoors. So don't think that because we are an Art camp we will be indoors all day, Art can be found and done everywhere!
ART EXPLORERS has been very enthusiastically received by children, parents and teachers. You can read some of them HERE
CHILD LED SESSIONS
We provide safe and engaging child led sessions where kids can explore art materials and techniques at their own pace. They get to know famous artists at the same time they express themselves creating inspired artworks.
We spend a long time planning each session or trip to a museum to make it, not only an enjoyable, fun experience, but an immersive way of learning about visual Arts and to promote critical thinking.
THE POWER OF IDEAS
All our sessions are developed with a strong link to alternative educational methods such Montessori, Neuroscience or Waldorf. Behind the engaging activities we offer, there's always a well researched approach to different types of Art, we don't always focus on the name of the artists but we direct the attention of the kids to the materials and ideas behind the artworks or to the time when they were created.
Creating a love for Art is for us as important as help develop the so called "abilities of the future" as critical thinking, teamwork, creativity or promote independence and responsibility. We work hard to strengthen important values as kindness, self confidence, compassion, equality, gratitude, friendliness or empathy.
LOW TEACHER|CHILD RATIOS
Our groups are small, up to 12 children, ensuring all children get the attention and guidance they require. Our child:adult ratio is 1:6, but we can often offer ratios of 1:5 and 1:3 depending on the activity. We want to provide high quality activities and personalise the experience so the children can get the most out of it and really learn about Art.
ORIGINAL ART SESSIONS
We bring the kids the possibility to create Art with many different materials. Of course we use card, clay and paint, but we often use bubbles, magnets, science experiments, cookies, water pistols...you name it!
