Description:

Specialized art education with Artmania develops engaged, confident, well-rounded, creative children. Artistic activities train the brain to think spatially, solve problems creatively & supports development in all other disciplines. Ever played with a Zoetrope? We'll teach your kids how. Zoetropes are simple devices that predate film animation. Each student will make their own device they can use again & again. Why do leaves change colour? Let’s take some trips to the gardens around the playground  and study and learn the Science of leaf colour change. Students will produce two beautiful leaf inspired metallic rubbings that will look great hung in your home. Have you ever wanted to film your own film?
