Rungu (Topsy-Turvy/Messy) Rangers Art & Craft Classes for Children are a great opportunity for you and your children to get creative and make a mess together!  Each class will have a different fun and inventive theme for us to play with but all will be filled with activities that use the whole body.  We will move around creatively, play games inventively, make a mess wonderfully, and listen to stories peacefully!  Café Wesa’e will provide specially created food and drinks to accompany each session.

Working with your body……..As we get older we lose the ability to not care about our mistakes and lose the opportunity to make a justified mess.  These art sessions are NOT about making the perfect picture or aiming for a perfect painting; they are about expression and building the confidence to experiment with new ideas and materials.  I am not going to tell you exactly what to do but create a space where you have the opportunity to express yourself in a creative environment.  In these 8 sessions we will concentrate on the figure.  Using art playfully we will study the human form and explore ways we can use our bodies when doing so.  This is a chance to experiment using all of your senses and to think creatively and freely.
