Throughout this creative workshop, Laura will challenge children to explore the territory of their imagination and even go beyond it. The classes will work both at an individual and relational levels. Children will be encouraged to express their own creativity and to interact with others.

In the first day, children will try their talents and their limitless creativity by illustrating a useful object that they will be able to keep. Before starting to doodle, they will talk about reality and imagination. Throughout the interactive class on October 19th, the children will make up a story together that they will illustrate separately. Parents will be able to assist participatively to the entire process.
