    Our Kid’s Arts and Crafts

    Our Arts and Crafts programme for children is aimed at expanding the child’s creative and imaginative thinking, building upon its problem solving skills. As the future of any nation, the child’s ability to problem-solve in a widely creative manner is one of the surest guaranties of that nation’s development. Our classes develop that creative energy, channeling it to positive results, nudging the child’s mind to work in an expansive manner. Our projects cut across various activities: Drawing, Clay crafts, Educational crafts, Jewelry & Accessories, Clothing & Costumes, Painting, Recycle Arts, Cardboard and Paper crafts, Cooking classes, Animal crafts, Photography and Cartooning. For Individual Families We hold an Arts and Crafts session every 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. This includes a 2 and a half hour Arts and Crafts session, a free movie with popcorn and drinks provided. All our sessions include lunch or / and snacks. Our programmes for schools are 2-fold: Firstly, we offer special excursions. Schools may bring students to our facility and we hold a 3 hour arts and crafts session. This option puts all of our materials readily available. We encourage schools to limit class size to 20 students. We provide light refreshments. Our second programme is the in-school service. We come to the school and we will work with the children in their natural environment. This option can be scheduled in place of

Even subtle signs of deconstructivism, is being reflected in a few buildings and what’s left of those old dowdy buildings, stick out like sore thumbs, almost as though naked in a park, wishing to hide in shame. “Progress” it seems, is synonymous with big houses, big cars and …. tight spaces. So eager are these structures to impose and impress that they dominate their entire grounds leaving not much of what we’d like to call negative space or in this case, breathing space. What’s left of the grounds is prudently divided between the odd shrub or 2, the very clichéd  masquerade tree and concrete. Concrete of course has to have greater consideration for the sake of “squeeze-parking” as many of  ’em big cars as there are. One
