stimulate creativity

During the workshops the children are encouraged to use their imagination through making drawings and design motifs with different tools which improve sensory stimulation.

work together

Whilst completing the mosaic, the children learn to work collaboratively by supporting each other, sharing skills, materials and tools, and problem solving together.

enjoyable learning

Through active learning, children can appreciate history, mathematics, geometry, and understand the process of making handmade artworks. They also learn new skills and specific techniques in a relaxed and informal school environment.

confidence building

At the end of every workshop or project, children will feel the impact of having achieved something important together and gain a sense of pride and increased confidence.
