About our Art Facilitators
Our facilitators guide and provide inspiration, encouraging children to think laterally and creatively. The intent of each child enjoying the process of art making is the priority; facilitators bring in fun-filled and interactive ways to cultivate a positive learning environment. We believe in instilling in children an insatiable desire to learn and expand their knowledge of the world of creativity, and using that capacity to contribute an important piece to the larger world.
Michelle and each of the facilitators are exposed to basic theories of art therapy where they are trained to observe each child's development stage of sensory and motor skills and match them to their relevant creative development process.
