Our concept for curious kids and adults
At the heart of all we do together, through our Creativity LAB approach
Our LABs nurture creative play experiences, through the building blocks of art, creativity and wellbeing.
We plant seeds of multi-sensory ideas, to nurture and grow together.
We foster authentic experiences, mindfully being present in the moment.
We are process and journey, not goal orientated.
We set up loose invitations or provocations to explore in an open ended way.
A person-centred approach underpins our philosophy.
We offer quality time for slowness, to disconnect from phones and re-connect with each other, and to ourselves.
We’re driven by being inquisitive, through experiences that encourage both the innate curiosity of the child, and open up the creative inner child of adults.
We aim to nourish the creative spirit in us all, especially that which can get lost for older kids and adults.
We believe in the restorative practices of finding your flow through self-expression.
We are an inquiry based community, we ask questions and listen, observe and play, both alongside and together.
Some inspirations for the little art concept:
The inquiry and child-centred Reggio Emilia Approach, where the secrets of materials are uncovered, unique to the explorer.
Embracing the seasons in the Waldorf Steiner pedagogy.
International, contemporary and historical approaches to artistic and creativity research
Slow Living, mindful experiences, noticing the tiny details through all our senses.
