" Creativity ArtWorkshops " is a creative educational art programme created by the artists Alexandra Soto and David Saavedra. This programme focuses on the development of the creative process and what we call "creative singularity".
Our aim is to develop growth Mindset techniques focusing on the creative process encouraging our students to become more independent while also improving their problem-solving skills through the Arts.
Each of us is born with an artistic sense unique and unrepeatable for what we investigate this singularity via creativity and artistic sense. Every child demonstrates a talent in a different way. Some think in 3D and others in 2D, some have pictorial minds and others think in a more analytical way. Because we are all different, we aim to find this talent and strengthen it through participation in the arts, enabling each child to use their creative singularity to find solutions, to be confident and enjoy the world of art.
We run activities such as Body Art, Land Art, Recycled Art, Shadow Puppets, Stop Motion, Light Painting, Urban Art, Cartoon & Comic, Portrait, Hand & feet Art, Creative Music, Songwriting and much more, where children learn to develop their creativity, initiative, imagination, emotional intelligence and the ability to think critically through activities inspired in the contemporary art.
We offer the option to have a Spanish full-immersion Creative Art Club, where the students learn a language and art at the same time in a fun and natural way. READ MORE ABOUT WHY WE TEACH IN SPANISH & ENGLISH.
Our workshops are held in schools, nurseries, art galleries, museums and private events.
