Children are eager to learn and a joy to teach
The aim is to provide children with the opportunity to create through stimulating projects in a fun, structured and creative environment. Various themes will be introduced when appropriate such as Easter, Christmas, spring, winter etc; and projects will incorporate these themes. The students will learn to manipulate the clay and gain an understanding of the properties of clay; it's strengths and weaknesses, and how to ensure that the desired effect can be achieved. Emphasis will be placed on fun with as little adult intervention as possible in order to retain the child like qualities of originality and naivety, which are very special and unique to children's art work.
Whilst having fun and being creative, children expand their skills such as;
* Fine motor development
* Decision-making, and cause and effect. Once the children understand the properties of the clay and how it can be manipulated, they start to think ahead to new projects and areas that they can apply their new found skills.
* Sequencing and patience!
* Pride. Children feel an immense sense of pride on the completion of each of their projects.
* Social skills.
* Lateral thinking and constructive criticism in a very positive and sensitive manner.
* You will see increased ability, self confidence and self esteem.
