CREATIVITY CLASSES FOR KIDS with Sabina Abdulajeva

 

"The Birth of Spring"

creative explorations through art history, art-making, and movement

This workshop is a series of 4 consecutive meetings connected to the subject of spring. Together with children we will look at how painters from different time periods (the Renaissance artists, the Impressionists, as well as 18th century Indian painters) depicted this time of the year on canvas. We will then express our own impressions and experiences of spring using diverse artistic techniques and materials (such as large format painting, collage, sculpting, drawing, printing). Movement exercises and games are at the foundation of this class. Through embodied engagement children develop presence, attention to their own experience, and confidence to express themselves. 

When: 7/3, 14/3, 21/3, 28/3 - 16:45-18:15h
Cost: whole class 55 Eur, drop-in 15 Eur
Age: from 4 y.o.

German conversational group is made for those who already have had the B1 lessons, but still struggle to express themselves in german. Quite often we expect from the language course that we immediately start speaking fluently because we know so much. But to integrate this new stuff and also get used to proper articulation it is important to have a lot of practice. Our group will create both safe and motivating environment which helps refresh your german, use what you learned, see what you are strong or week at and fix the weak part. Discussing interesting topics and having fun socializing will make you feel more confident. You will also have the opportunity to enlarge your vocabulary for conversational purposes or revise any language issues you find difficult or confusing. 
 
About the teacher: Elena was born in Moscow. She has been speaking German since 8 years old. Elena holds a diploma as german language teacher and linguist from the Moscow State University. She holds a number of certificates from various seminars and workshops from Goethe-Institut, DAAD and has been for years an actress in the Austrian student theater.
