What Happens in this Wild Creations workshop?
Workshops and group work are an important part of a child's development as they encourage the child to work both independently and as part of a team.
This workshop uses movement of the body to create personal works of art. This is a workshop which encourages its participants to get out of their heads and into their bodies by using embodied movement practices which enable them to embrace their creativity in a more mindful way.
This creative space offers children the opportunity to release unwanted or heavy energies from their bodies through the use of dance and meditative movement. This practice helps the children to become more aware of their emotions and body sensations.
Once the children have taken part in some fun, energetic movements, they will be encouraged to share how that experience felt for them and what, if any, feelings may have come to the surface. The children will then be guided into a meditative movement process that will encourage them to feel into their bodies on a more sensory level. Whilst the children are in this meditative place they will then be encouraged to express their emotions using chalks/paints on the paper provided.
This could be a personal, individual art process where the child can then take their art creation home, or it could be done as a group using a larger, shared template which could then be displayed within the school..
Children will need to wear clothing suitable to paint and move comfortably in, preferably shorts and t-shirt.
