CREATIVE CHILDHOOD: WHERE TO BEGIN
Creativity is the heart and soul of childhood. Children are born full of curiosity: their creativity is robust and it guides them to make meaning of the world around them.
This workshop considers what is possible when we believe in the capabilities and creativity of young children and ourselves as parents. We will explore how to engage children in ways that enhance their natural born creativity, including:
- our beliefs about children and how this shapes our interactions with them
- our home environments as a profound influence in our children's development
- using materials as languages of expression's
- how photography can build relationships, critical thinking and imagination
- project work development as a way to support our children's passions
This interactive workshop will give you new insights and inspiration, and next steps to take in fostering creative childhoods in your own home.
