There is an extra optional add on for Aireys Primary students to be collected from school at 3pm, book separately. Classes are evolved around a small group of kids looking to enhance their creative skills and emotional well being. This program is a term course with each week building on the previous. Each session is different but typically incorporates: - a relaxation activity, - a chat about the week, - a creative activity which may include one or more of painting, drawing, clay, textiles, drawing and more - Reflection and discussion Some past activities have included: colour mixing with paints (learning about primary colours and how to mix them to make a range of colours), graffiti style affirmations using our new colour mixing skills, design (drawing) masks and then creating wearable masks with a range of materials, mixed media collaborative drawing with the whole class. Teaching children to use the creative arts to give "voice" to thoughts they cannot verbally express, in a fun and safe environment. Each session will start with a warm up, include activities which promote the processing of self-esteem, trauma, stress or anxiety and include opportunities to reflect. Children will be encouraged to: use problem solving, imagination and self-expression to build self-awareness; communicate thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Materials and equipment is provided. It is recommended to wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting a little messy. It is important to stay hydrated so please bring your own water bottle.
