During our homeschooling sessions, your children will experience and practise a wide variety of artistic techniques and learn to express themselves through the creative process.
Having been trained in Montessori education, I understand the importance of “following the child”, by recognising and engaging in what they enjoy and get enthused by. I show the children certain techniques and then I act as the facilitator.
See here for the Montessori-based principles that I use:
Involvement in the arts is a key part of any child’s education, with growth in confidence, resilience and decision-making. In addition, through the arts, children discover figurative forms of communication, such as symbolism and metaphor. Art can also allow for the development of fine motor skills in young children.
Examples of what I can offer . . .
- Needle Felting
- Wet Felting
- Printmaking (using Lino or foam depending on age and size of group)
- Fused Glass
