"Art doesn't have to match the couch"
This spring I am running a therapeutic workshop for children between the ages of 7 to 11 at the ArtFix Café in Woolwich, London. This unique workshop is four weeks long and is designed to promote positive mental health through creativity and inspiration.
Kids will learn valuable expertise to obtain positive friendships, positive self-esteem, emotional regulation, how to handle bullies, conflict resolution, and the importance of mindfulness. These skills will be taught through art, games, strength-based activities, theatre, and crafts.
Some of the highlights of the workshop will include: collaging a rose and thorn thought journal (using magazine clippings and mod podge), creating a volcano using (baking soda, vinegar), painting on canvases, participating in funny skits, and decorating clay pots and planting seeds.
All activities are supervised by adults in a number that meets that UK standard child-to-adult ratio. All of our employees/volunteers have current up to date DBS checks and first aid training. Parents have the option to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and wait at the café during the workshop or they can pick up their children at 1:00 pm when the workshop is over.
"Embark on a creative journey of self-discovery"
Every child is unique and colourful in their own way. This workshop is aspired to empower children to embrace their humour and guide them to find their own strengths.
If you are interested in signing your child up for my workshop you are more than welcome to call us at 07526811522 as we will be conducting a free consultation for 30 minutes for every parent to discuss your child’s personal needs and how they can benefit from the workshop. You have the choice to consult with our Counselling Psychologist over the phone or we can arrange a time to meet in person in a private and confidential space at the ArtFix Café location. If your child has special needs please reach out for the free consultation so we can make proper arrangements.
