As parents we all struggle with finding avenues for our childrens' creativity. Now for the first time in Riyadh, a professionally trained and qualified artists/designer, who also happens to be a mom to two boisterous little boys, offers such an opportunity.
Artducate offers weekly classes of 90 minutes each based around a specific theme each week. The classes help children learn through participation: creatively addressing each educational theme with the help of hands-on art and craft projects, sensory play, and discovery through materials and mixed media.
The focus of artducate is to create a fun, innovative educational environment: a place where kids learn to explore their surrondings through art and creativity. We aim to make learning hands-on, particpatory, and fun - enabling the conditions for each child to unleash his/her creative potential in its own unique form.
Artducate offers one 90-minute class a week on late Saturday mornings. Children will be asked to focus on a new theme and accompanying facts, stories, talents and perspectives to express themselves in creative new ways. In this way they will learn to read, observe, internalise and them produce an artwork or craft prokect which reflects their understanding of that particular theme.
