Why D.I.Y. at Summer Camp?
Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist.” We wholeheartedly agree and also believe that being able to use tools is a great idea, too! At AR Workshop, we love helping children (and adults) find their inner artist. One way we do this is by providing ARt camp sessions specifically for them. We are passionate about giving children an opportunity to learn how to use tools early and gain confidence in a workshop setting. Giving your child the gift of ARt camp is a parent’s win! There is so much to be gained from this hands-on crafting experience.
Here are just a few benefits parents and children can look forward to from DIY camp:
-Developing a sense of pride in their abilities: “Look what I made!”
-Nurturing the creative side of brains
-Developing fine and gross motor skills
-Instilling confidence in self, in creating, in being in a group setting, in using tools, and in decision making
-Practicing patience, concentration, problem solving, and workflow in a group setting that is positive and engaging
-Stimulating senses by using different tools, mixed media and transforming something simple (piece of wood) into a masterpiece
-Learning the skill of upcycling to be resourceful, eco-friendly, and save money
-Using hands and mind to create without being tied to a digital device
-Developing sense of ownership as they create pieces to decorate their own space (bedroom, study area, etc.)
-Relaxing while making something that reflects current interests and hobbies and interacting with new friends
