The Childrens Art Factory

Every Tuesday

226-500-1544

297 Woolwich Street, Guelph, ON, N1H 3W4

Details: At the Children’s Art Factory we believe…. In the process vs the product Creativity cannot be taught, it can only blossom. And it blossoms through play. In the beautiful mess created by children with the time and agency to bask in the productive joy of their own making. All children are Artists. All children are gifted. Discovering who you are is usually messy and loud but quiet and methodical are just fine too. Every child needs space and materials and the quieting of adult voices to make their own sense of the world. True innovative ART never comes from pre-cut circles and step by step directions. Children do not need to be bothered with learning all the names of every paint color. They just need to paint. Children can create so much more than a painted hand-print. The best way to keep a child safe is to keep a close eye AND give them the world with all its tiny bits and sharp edges. Children deserve space to explore expected and unexpected art and materials before choosing one to master. If you create an environment that fosters creativity, children will do the rest. Germs can be beneficial That children are great teachers. Children have an aesthetic. Children need at least one place where it’s the adults whose bodies aren’t quite the right size. Children would rather tell people about their painting than have it proclaimed nice or good. Children who are deeply engaged in play should not be bothered.
