"In the secret places of childhood, the soul drinks deeply, is refreshed, and flourishes"
Children express naturally through the language of art and play. Giving children time to express feelings, fantasies, fears and conflicts symbolically through art and play, allows for clarification and safe release, leading to resolution through the child’s own imagery and imagination. The child learns that they can both manage and face their fears, leading to increased self-confidence and reduced anxiety.
Our school holiday workshops imagine yourself magic provide a space for children to explore and express feelings and emotions in a fun and supportive environment.
