We are delighted to welcome you and your family to be part of something special. YOU ARE THE ARTIST! is not just an art workshop, it is a joyful space designed for you and your children to create magic moments together.
For parents and guardians, it is a place to reconnect with their inner children while the young ones find their own identity by exploring creativity. We invite the participants to be part of the storytelling conducted by the artist by adding their family language to the story. And after that, they will create an art project to bring home to continue playing together. We create a safe and heart-warming space where everyone is welcome to speak their family language and make new friends.
Booking is required. When you reserve a child ticket the accompanying adult goes free. Children must be under the supervision of an accompanying adult at all times.
