ART opens numerous opportunities for a child’s aesthetic education. It plays an important role in shaping various facets of a personality. As the essence of art lies in depicting objects and phenomena from the real world, it is significant for one’s intellectual development. Art is especially important for the development of a child’s creative independence, imagination and activity. Each child covers his/her own way of creative development. Therefore, individual work with children acquires a special meaning. We respect a child’s peculiarities and dispositions.

- 15:30 – 17:00 – Quilling for Juniors (AR2)* (for juniors 7 – 12)
- Saturdays 15:00 – 17:00 (adults)
Quilling is a paper art form that has a long history. The art of quilling, or coiling, paper has been around for centuries – from monks curling gold paper during the Renaissance, to young ladies learning the art during the 19th century. Today, quilling is just as popular as ever. It’s called “quilling” because the paper would be rolled onto feathers. Today we have lots of neat tools that can be used instead of feathers. All you will need are the right quilling tools, a little patience, and some creativity. It is the art of taking thin strips of paper, of varying widths, and rolling, gluing and shaping them into different shapes and designs. You then take these little shapes and glue them together to create awesome quilled 2D or 3D masterpieces. Quilling is a super time consuming hobby, but awesomely relaxing, as well you will have a lot of wonderful hand-made presents for your friends. You should definitely give it a try! Please, see Timetable for the time of the classes and book online. The cost of a drop in class is 15 Euro; 4 classes valid for one month – 50 Euro, 4 classes valid for two months – 55 Euro. The materials are provided.
