If you were wandering around Piran during the summer, you might have stumbled upon the workshops I host for kids. The first one took place in 2016 as part of larger festival in Piran, Zrno Soli. I don’t know what was more surprising – the amazing feedback we received from the parents, or the level of creativity the kids showed during their time here. That’s why this year I decided to organise more of them, basically every week from July to September. Check out the video below to see what we got up to this summer:
There is no age limit, but so far children from the ages of 5–12 have shown the most interest and had the most fun. It takes about 60 minutes for kids to finish their work, and the results are great. Participation is free of charge, and in just 3 years, I’ve hosted young creatives from all over the globe. I was afraid the language would be a problem with the youngest participants, but luckily art is a language understood all around the world. If you’d like to know when applications for the next series of workshops are open, make sure to leave me your email here.
A fun story..
In 2017, I hosted a workshop for kids visiting the elementary school in Portorož. What I didn’t know at the time is that they are actively participating in an international programme, where schools from all around Europe can connect with each other, share their knowledge and best practice. They talked about our workshop to a school from Pontevedra, Spain, and apparently they liked it so much they created their own version of it. You can imagine what a surprise it was for me when they sent me the pictures of their work, when I had no idea they were doing it. It was one of my proudest moments so far, and if anybody involved in that workshop is reading this – you are amazing, and make sure to tell that to everybody else too!
