Creative Teaching

Constructing a Portfolio of Creative Activities in the Early Years

Creativity plays a critical role in a child’s development, particularly in the early years.

This workshop is aimed at channeling curiosity, exploration and play for 3 to 6 year olds in the classroom setting through a variety of cross-domain activities, including art, music, movement, imaginative and dramatic play activities.

A team of highly skilled and passionate practitioners from 5 countries will be combining their expertise to give best-practices and practical strategies for designing and implementing your own classroom portfolios of creative activities.

These highly engaging and interactive sessions are taught in a collaborative environment, whilst being mindful of participants’ individual learning styles and needs. Everyone will be given the opportunities to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings so that they may replicate these hands-on learning activities in their own classroom as well as design similar ones. We will be identifying underlying cultural aspects, as well as celebrating our global diversity. In addition, this course includes exclusive access to a database of creative learning activities developed by the Hoopla! education staff. 

This workshop gives you:

  • In-depth understanding of creativity in the early years
  • Experience creativity in the making
  • Practical strategies to apply cross-domain activities
  • Design own portfolio of creative classroom activities
  • Apply learning through a unique collaborative experience
  • A Certificate of Completion

A pre-registration survey is distributed to all participants so that we can tailor the training experience to meet your needs as well as integrate the right combination of learning styles (auditory, visual and kinesthetic). 

The training will commence with the live creation of a Rope Painting by Paris-based Contemporary Artist Paul Frank Wagner, who will weave his rope around the audience as creativity is explored in action and conclude with the opportunity for participants to put their learning into action through a collaborative creative output of participants.

The workshop includes: Lunch, a music giveaway and access to the Hoopla framework.
