At Creative Explorers the children have the opportunity to explore visual art materials and techniques in the context of unique project work and relevant themes. Through exploring culture and connecting to their community children will learn more about themselves, build confidence and fine motor skills as they become more familiar with different artists, illustrators and authors and ways to capture and or share their own stories, experiences and ideas using visual art techniques such as drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, collage and printing.
Dramatic Play, Storytelling & Performing
Through enrolling in imaginative and dramatic play children collaborate and begin to explore some simple concepts of performance. In these sessions children engage with the different roles of the theatre, storytelling ideas and puppetry. They have the opportunity to develop their confidence and imagination as they explore various roles such from storyteller/narrator, performer, audience, and front of house host in fun and collaborative ways.
Nature, Movement & Well-being
Art and creativity can come in many forms some of which only last in the moment or in the experience of the participant. Through these sessions children work in the indoor and outdoor spaces to explore their body and mind, how they can move and play in creative ways and they can connect with the natural environments around them as they use natural materials in playful and resourceful ways. These sessions help to explore ways to regulate emotions, communicate with others and embrace a greater sense of well-being through connecting with the body.
Investigating & Exploring
Working creatively is a wonderful way for children and their grown ups to investigate, explore and research their interests as they extend on their existing knowledge and ideas. This is an important part of the Creative Explorers experience and helps to provide children with opportunities to discover their interests, build on their knowledge and deepen their connections.
