Visual Storytelling: A photography and writing workshop for children aged 6-12

Description:

Visual Storytelling is the incorporation of pictures or photographs in the storytelling process. It is an effective form of communication and persuasion as research has shown that most of the information that we process are visual and we also tend to remember visual information more than other types of information.

Speak Up, Speak Well! : A Confidence Building Programme for Introverted Children

Description: This 2 day workshop is designed to boost students' confidence (especially introverted children) in their speaking and presentation skills and their ability to express themselves in a safe space. As part of this programme, the children will be engaged in artistic activities like drama and movement, origami, sketching and clay making, to help them generate ideas for the presentation of these topics:

  1. Food

At every stage, children will be given guidance on body language, pronunciation, projection of voice, clarity and fluency of speech.

They would also be doing a mini-presentation at the end of every session and video-recordings of these presentations will be sent to the parents.

Young Inventors Programme

Description: Perfect for the budding entrepreneur!! In this 3-day multi-intelligences programme, children take on the role of young inventors as they find real solutions to real problems affecting children. Based on Design Thinking Principles originally from Stanford University, the participants of this workshop will be doing the following:

  1. Research into problems (Day 1)
  2. Creating prototypes of solutions (Day 2)
  3. Presenting and "selling" their solutions to classmates, instructors and parents (Day 3)

At every stage, children will be writing and journaling about their process leading up to their prototype. This ensures that they are actively thinking about how to problem solve and reflecting on how to improve their design.

The presentation on Day 3 also trains them to be confident speakers & writers, as they persuade others to use their products as a viable solution.

Dates & Times:

To be confirmed.

Cost: $250 per child (This includes all learning materials and a copy of the edited videoclip.)

*Each intake is limited to 6 participants.
