ART FOR KIDS

Art is an antistress antidote, a healing process, increases our self confidence, makes us feel good and helps us think out of the box.
Drawing is one of the most important activities your kid can do. Not only it provides the basis for other creative activities – like painting, sculpture and printmaking – but it also provides a direct link with reading, writing and especially mathematics. At Helea’s drawing workshop for children, we teach children that mistakes are opportunities within a creative process, and we encourage them to think out of the box. We encourage personal creativity, and we are creating a momentum of happiness, that they will then take with them, in a form of piece of paper, to share it with you alongside the hug. Visit our concierge desk to learn more and book a spot at our weekly drawing classes, while your staying with us at Helea Resort.
