During January we focused on promoting creativity with art and the written word through a series of workshops. The first activity was a drawing contest during which the children learned different kinds of techniques and applied their creativity through colored pencils and paint. The second activity involved writing poetry. The objective was to let their creative juices flow, coming up with original verses. This activity reinforced literacy and writing skills. The last activity was a songwriting workshop. Children wrote out their favorite songs and had the chance to perform them at the end.
