Sadly, for many children, this is a rare experience. Technology and “non-messy” activities are important, but in the same time, there is no high-tech without creative and abstract thinking which is what DRAWING promotes.

Apart from being tons of fun, DRAWING helps children to convey ideas & express emotions.

They will use their senses, explore color, process outcomes and create aesthetically pleasing works of art.

Art also helps with writing and math skills. Your children will learn how to enjoy the process of creating and get the results they are looking for.

Mosaic art is a popular an exciting craft. It is effective in bringing about positive neuropsychological change.  The therapeutic nature of mosaics is in the essence of the process (slow, mediative, absorbing, physical, bringing together mind and body) as well as in the symbolism of the making a hole from broken parts.

MOSAIC art assists in the development of 

  • Fine motor skills
  • Holistic perception of the world (everything is made of parts)
  • Logic, attention, patience
  • Decision-making
  • Imagination and creativity
  • Hand/Eye coordination ( important for reading and writing)
  • Counting, matching & sorting
  • Spatial and Visual organization (basics of geometry)

By the end of each lesson you won’t believe what your child can do!

CLAY is a unique and simple program, making it possible to create a magical wonderland of clay characters. Rolling, squeezing and forming! Kids, of course, think it’s just plain fun!

But working with CLAY is an invaluable experience for:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Sensory development
  • Self esteem
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Discipline
  • Self-expression

CLAY also has a unique therapeutic quality that settle and calm children. It can retain their attention for hours. Every lesson your child will make ready to take home sculptures of animals, nature, fairy-tail characters and much more. This is a first step to learning animation.

We use different types of clay such as Polymer clay, Air dry clay, Oven bake clay & Plasticine.
