About This Project

“Art teambuilding in the classroom” is a new project of the Foundation, aimed at children from first to seventh grade. It brings art into the lives of children in the form of a group work. For a given period of time, all students from a class create an art installation together, which remains as a final result of their consolidation, group work and creativity. Various arts and crafts techniques are used throughout the process. The format helps in creating and developing common values in the class, communicative skills and creative thinking.

“Art teambuilding in the classroom” is held in school, where children study or at another place suitable for that specific format.

Main objectives of the project

  • To develop communication skills, imagination, initiative, adaptability, self-expression, ability to solve problems, differing abilities and motivation;
  • To create a new relationship between classmates based on team work and creativity;
  • To promote creativity as an important aspect of the formation of children as whole persons;
  • To promote communication among children by building capacity in them to work and communicate in a larger group with their peers;
  • To enable children to develop their potentials and enable opportunities;
  • To sensitize them towards the realization of a common goal – to teach them the advantages of being a part of a larger group. To develop and manifest qualities such as empathy, altruism, tolerance and respect.

Learning through creativity

This is a conceptually new approach in working with children, and is a fundamental part of the Unity Method – learning through creativity and experience:

  • Children explore the world through their senses and possibilities of conscious creativity and free experimentation;
    They are curious and curiosity is a huge support for training;
  • Children need to communicate and create an environment in which they can express. That pushes their development further – a quiet classroom does not necessarily mean an effective classroom;
  • Developing a sense of responsibility in children is closely linked to the confidence we have in them and the example that we provide;
  • Children are enthusiastic – when children develop an interest in what is taught the learning process becomes successful;
  • All human beings play – children are explorers, expanding the boundaries of their own world, to discover and learn new things.
