The Importance of Creative Expression

Wednesday October 24, 2012           Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm                     2 hours

This workshop addresses how to incorporate drama and movement into children’s programming. We will explore the nature of the creative process, inclusion, creating safe environments, establishing boundaries, redirection and positive reinforcement through arts programming. We will discuss the value of art activities in child care as well as look at the practicalities involved in implementation. This workshop is highly experiential.

Please wear comfortable clothing and come ready to move and play.

Presenter: Dayna Kneeland. Dayna holds a BFA Specializing in Theatre and Development from Concordia University and is currently pursuing her MA in Educational Studies at UBC. She is a community arts worker with over fifteen years’ experience in child and youth care.
