Hi, my name is Nikki and I offer Kids Art Classes.
I have developed a program that encourages children to explore their creative potential by exposing them to a variety of mediums, materials and techniques. From painting and drawing to collage and (clay) sculpture…. anything is possible! I love sharing my passion for art with children.
Creativity is an energy that encourages us to explore our ideas and use our imagination. It connects us with our inner most selves and when we allow that energy to flow freely, miracles happen!
I believe it is essential for children that they develop both creativity and imagination as this will serve them well in life. By focusing our attention on our dreams and desires we increase self awareness which helps us to understand our emotions. Expressing ourselves creatively helps balancing these emotions (making art can be very therapeutic!). Besides, if we choose to work outside, it also helps us to connect with our natural environment and the world we live in. By opening ourselves up to our imagination and allowing ourselves to be creative, we opens doors in life as life itself is an act of creation.
Over the past couple of years I have been working as a nanny while also studying Visual Arts. My intention is to focus more on the creative development of children. The exercises I created can be adjusted to each individual’s needs and interests and can often also be done outside (park, backyard, or recreational area).
I have a valid Working With Children Check, Police Certificate and a couple of references.
Feel free to contact me for more information.
