"Before a child talks, they sing. Before they write, they draw. As soon as they stand, they dance. Art is fundamental to human expression."
- Phylicia Rashād.
We all know art and creativity is important for our children's education. Music, poetry,
drama, visual arts, every kind of artistic form plays an big role in their learning process
and in the way they connect with the world. Through art, children learn to take risks, pay
attention to detail, understand different feelings and see how there can be multiple
meanings in what we see and say.
The goal of this Art Festival is to create a space for sharing and celebrating the art that
is produced in our community - everyone†is†welcome†to†participate†!
Children, parents (and other relatives), teachers and staff, and other members of our
community may choose the participate in the following ways:
- Playing instruments, singing, reciting poems, telling stories, dancing,
acting, doing magic tricks and any kind of artistic expression that you want
to share are welcome!
- We will have a digital piano and a sound system available.
- Get creative about your participation, for example, if your child is a poet
but would not go on stage, you can recite his/her poems.
- Click here to register and let's rock and roll!
- Offering or participating in workshops
- 30-minute workshops will be offered by members of our community to
share their personal gifts, techniques and artistic expressions such as
origami, crochet, dancing, drama, etc.
