Artsy Children *2

Art Contest PART 2
Bredeschool Hart Van Noord

Team project #3

Last Tuesday was the chance for the kids in the lunchbreak-group from 10‚Äď13 years to show their drawing skills and creativity.

The question given by us was:
What do you think you can contribute to your neigborhood Kanaleneiland/ school to make it a more peaceful place?

All of them got really into the topic and many children had innovative ideas on how to develop their environment and make it more “vreedsam” (peaceful). That made the decision for the 3 best drawings really difficult for us.

Ashyn and Nevra. Congrats!

Raphaela, our winner. Gratulations! ūüėČ

Today, Friday, we awarded the prizes to the 3 winners: Raphaela, Nevra and Ashyn. Especially those 3 were most original in their idea.

During the award ceremony we emphasized the potential of every child to become a peacemaker in their neighborhood by setting their ideas into practice.

Thanks to all the kids for taking part in the art contest and a big “Thank you” especially to the team of Saartje Kinderopvang for their admission and support to the project.

Art Contest PART 1
Bredeschool Hart Van Noord
3 March 2011

Team project #2

The Contest was aimed to make the participants think.

We gave 3 questions to pick from:
1. What do you think you can contribute to your neigborhood Kanaleneiland/ school to make it a more peaceful place?
2. How does a happy and joyful family look like?
3. What do you like about your parents?

The children came up with lovely ideas for Kanaleneiland and the local area, were showing us their image of their parents. Interesting was also that every child has his own way of expressing him/herself.

Thanks to all the kids for taking part and for the team of Saartje Kinderopvang.
PS: Also have a look at: Part 2 of the Project!

Gelukkige Valentijnsdag!

Wholeheartedly working.

Our first team project!!!

On valentines day we organised an activity for kids to make their parents valentines cards at our local primary school in Kanaleneiland!  It was a chance for them to express their appreciation for their parents through their artistic creativity.  It was incredible to see everyone getting involved; even the children that are usually more distracted and unsettled.

We were really happy to see that the children enjoyed the activity and we’re sure that their parents loved their amazing cards!

Thank you to all the staff members at Bredeschool Hart Van Noord who allowed this project to take place and who supported us!
