‘THE IMAGINATION STATION’: INSPIRING LITTLE ARTISTS
MONTHLY CREATIVE SESSIONS FOR HOME EDUCATED + PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” Albert Einstein
Welcome to The Imagination Station: a haven for mini Monet’s to unleash their creativity in a dynamic and nurturing space.
We’re excited to launch these monthly two-hour freeflow sessions to reunite children of all ages following extended periods of isolation.
We believe that development of the imagination is integral to learning, critical thought and neuroplasticity. Children will be encouraged to explore various activity stations, overseen by guest art facilitators, to create collages, crafts, clay sculptures, paint canvases, colour mandalas, explore textures, develop techniques and enjoy hands-on fun supported by a range of interactive activities.
WEDNESDAY SESSIONS: FOR PRE-SCHOOLERS & HOME ED’ERS
Beginning with monthly Wednesday morning sessions (commencing April 21), pre-school and home educated children will be encouraged, through art, to express their emotions, explore the beauty of nature, enjoy multi-sensory experiences and make new friends: all stimulating tools to relieve stress and anxiety, increase self-esteem, build confidence and improve hand-eye coordination.
KIDS’ SUMMER EXHIBITION AT WEST ACRE GALLERY
The school year will culminate with an all-inclusive children’s summer exhibition at West Acre Gallery, open to the public for 7 days, in which children of all ages will be invited to showcase their favourite creations.
SUPPORT OUR CROWDFUNDER!
Please donate today and help us kindle kids’ imaginations and ignite the artists within.
HOW WE WILL USE THE FUNDS
The funds we aim to raise through our Crowdfunder will help to purchase disposable art materials such as paints, pencils, paper, glue, pastels, brushes, markers, clay and mini canvases.
This money will also contribute to the kids’ summer art exhibition, to cover the costs of venue hire, marketing material, custom merchandise, picture frames and the exhibition’s open day refreshments.
