What is Kindergarten Clayworks?
Scheduled within the children’s school day, I transport my studio to kindergartens and teach a small group once a week for 4 weeks. For children over 4+, this weekly one hour workshop focuses on problem solving and the constructioning complex work using simple steps.
Workshop projects are inspired by visually stimulating picture books and often include a catchy song. Children are taught not only about ceramic art, but also the importance of listening, new vocabulary words, and how to follow instructions. There is plenty of fine motor skill practice and opportunities to try something that seems very difficult.
Encouraging self-mastery, self-knowledge, and self-esteem is as vital to the workshops as building the clay projects.
Building Self-esteem through Handbuilding
Here is are some examples:
What is better than a good picture book coupled with handbuilding with clay?
And if I add a song?? BIG SMILES for everyone!
I can bring my studio to your child’s kindergarten for 45 minutes a week, for four consecutive weeks. 4 children per group, for aged 4.5-7 years.
65€ per child.
