Art and Design
Creative arts give children agency, confidence in their own decisions and the tools to express and regulate their emotions. At Roots, we give children safe spaces to be creative, building skills and traits that will serve them in life, education and the working world.
How We Teach Art and Design
Our practitioners lead sessions that teach children how to use paint brushes, powder paints, glue spreaders, scissors and more. This gives children a range of artistic tools they can use to express themselves independently.
In child-initiated sessions, children are empowered to use their imagination and follow their own plans. They build confidence making new connections, solving problems, and sharing new ideas.
We give children play materials to create narratives, build worlds, and enact roleplays.
